Training has commenced for the CITIUS MAG Blue Jeans Mile Presented by Raleigh Denim at the Sir Walter Miler in Raleigh, North Carolina on Aug. 4.

On Tuesday night, the Sir Walter Miler organizers hosted one of their Pop Up Miles and we got our first look at a possible Blue Jeans Mile contender.

Sandy Roberts, who boasts a 4:01 indoor mile personal best from 2009, put on a pair of Raleigh Denim jeans and gave it a go.
