Would like to learn more about the Minnesota greats from the modernization periods of Minnesota distance running 1880s to 1959.
- First runner to break 2:00 in the 880?
- First runner to break 4:30 in the mile?
- First runner to break 4:20 in the mile?
Let’s also talk about the all-time greats whose school was along the shores of Lake Superior like Duluth (especially the historic Duluth Central), Two Harbors, etc. Geographically speaking I am fascinated by the iron range and shore towns.
The unique part about who was who in this time period is that their accolades will no doubt offer a window in to what life was like and we will identify well with them because they ran competitively.
