Welcome to the 3rd Annual Ed Murphey Classic. We're back in the Birthplace of Rock 'N Roll with an evening of World-class middle-distance running at Christian Brothers High School!
Everyone can run in the same track meet as professional athletes!! Join these World-class athletes to test your limits on the track and stick around to watch the pros take a crack at the Olympic Performance Standards right here in Memphis TN!
MISSION: The mission of the Ed Murphey Classic is to provide youth athletes in the Memphis area an opportunity to experience a World-class track and field event and have a chance to compete in the same event as elite caliber middle-distance runners from all over the World. Through youth and community races, Memphis athletes can compete in the event in a program scheduled prior to the Professional races. We hope that this unique opportunity will inspire the youth of Memphis to pursue healthy and active lifestyles as they chase their dreams to, one day, also become World-class athletes or performers!
In the last two years the Ed Murphey Memphis Mile featured more than $18,000 in guaranteed prize money for invited elite athletes, including special time bonuses for setting the all-time Memphis and Tennessee-soil Mile records. This year, the event will include 800m, 1500m, and Invite Mile races as we expand the meet to the Ed Murphey Classic.
Kids, parents, and the whole family can take part in this event! Don't miss out and sign up today!
