The Wanamaker Mile - Champions List

The highlighted event at the Millrose Games every February is the Wanamaker Mile. Every year since 1926 some of the greatest milers in the world have tested themselves in this classic race. In all the Internet one thing we found missing was a list of the Wanamaker Mile Champions...So here it is.

We've done our best to compile the most accurate list we can from old Millrose Games programs and other web sites, and thanks to Millrose Games Meet Director Emeritus, Mr Howard M. Schmertz, we now have the complete record of these great Wanamaker Mile Champions.
