10th annual Boyer Mile set to begin Tuesday at ASU

JONESBORO, Ark. (ASU) – The Arkansas State Red Wolves women's basketball team will begin the 10th-annual "Boyer Mile" preseason conditioning program Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 6:00 p.m. at the ASU running track located adjacent to the Convocation Center and Tomlinson Stadium-Kell Field.

The "Boyer Mile" will run for four consecutive weeks (weather permitting), wrapping up with a post-run party Oct. 3.  Each week, the Boyer Mile will be run on Tuesday evenings, with the exception of the final week, which will be held on a Monday.

Any ASU fan who is not a high school athlete (grades 9-12) is invited to join head coach Brian Boyer and the Red Wolves women's basketball team to participate in the four-week training program.  While the Red Wolves will be running a timed mile, anyone wishing to run or walk may join the team, making the conditioning program more enjoyable for the athletes while at the same timepromoting fitness in the community.
