Henry Wynne is at it again.
The 2013 Staples High graduate — the greatest male runner in school history, who set a state scholastic record in the mile (4:05.04), then starred at the University of Virginia, and has since roared to a personal best 3:55.23 — aims for a world record tomorrow.
Wynne is now based in Seattle. He runs professionally for Brooks Beasts. He and 3 teammates will compete in the Dr. Norbert Sander Invitational at the New York Armory. Their goal: beating the 16:12.81 time for the 4 x 1 mile relay.
That record was set 2 years ago by the Hoka One One NJ/NY Track Club. They’ll run at the Armory too.
All 4 of the Beasts have sub-4 minute mile times.
Tomorrow’s race begins at 1:46 p.m. It will be televised on NBC Gold.
