There's no doubt the Arcadia Invitational will put on a show Saturday in the elite boys 3200m.
A year ago, 25 boys broke the finish line in the 3200m under 9 minutes and two others broke 9 minutes in the seeded section.
Will we see that again?
That's too be determined, but at the very least we know the race will be unquestionably fast.
Yet again, Arcadia, held annually at Arcadia High in California, has put together one of the top pre-national fields in the 3200m that we'll see over the regular season, with handfuls of boys capable of going under that elusive 9-minute barrier.
Check out the entry list for Saturday's race below.
