On Friday, May 3rd the Flying Pig Marathon will host the third leg of the TQL Beer Series, the Fifty West Mile. That event will culminate with two elite fields, men and women, at approximately 7:45 PM.

The elite fields will be by invitation only. Men that can run 4:30 min/mile or faster and women that can run 5:30 min/mile or faster can submit an application to be considered for the field.

Each elite field will consist of 15 participants. These participants will be selected by the fastest submitted qualifying times with at least 7 spots in each field reserved for local participants. Local participants will be those defined as having a mailing address (no PO Box) with zip codes that begin these three numbers:  410, 470, 450, 451, or 452. Potential participants should submit their best 2022 1500, mile, or 5K time as well as their personal bests in each of these events. Include date and location when achieved. The first 10 to register in each elite field will receive a free ASICS jacket.
