The boys 800 meter race features Class 3A state champion Devan Kirk (Shorewood) and Class 4A state titlist Daniel Maton (Camas).
The Brooks PR Invitational returns to Shoreline Stadium on Saturday. The shoe company gathered 130 of the fastest high-school runners to participate in its seventh annual meet, the first race starting at 1:30 p.m.
Brooks is also live streaming the races.
Lake Stevens sophomore Taylor Roe is one to watch in the girls mile. She briefly held the nation’s fastest time in the event, clocking in at 4 minutes, 45 seconds in April at a meet in Portland.
On Saturday, Roe is in a field where six girls enter with times ranging from 4:41 to 4:45. Montana’s Annie Hill is the favorite, winning the mile race with a time of 4:41 last year at the PR Invitational.
