Live now - 5th Avenue Mile coverage

Fifth Avenue mile live coverage - Live Now!

As mentioned by Jonathan in yesterday's post, we're carrying a live feed from the Fifth Avenue Mile in New York City.  The men's race in particular should be a great race, with some big names including Bernard Lagat, Leo Manzano, Amine Laalou and a returning Nick Willis and Alan Webb featuring.

The race is live below - coverage is well underway, but the elite races get going at 18h50 SA Time, in just on 90 minutes from now.  If you are getting this message in your inbox, you've got literally 5 minutes until the men's race gets going, so check out the footage, courtesy the NYRR.
