We are proud to be renaming the San Francisco State Distance Carnival in honor of SF State Hall of Famer Mike Fanelli in 2019!
In its 12th year of running, this meet (formerly the San Francisco State Distance Carnival) has evolved into an ideal opportunity for distance runners to set fast times at a fantastic venue with ideal weather conditions and loaded fields. Athletes and teams from across the country have become part of this growing 3-day event since it began in 2008.
We are proud to announce that in 2019 the meet has been renamed in honor of Mike Fanelli, 3 times USA National Team Coach, track & field historian, and notably the San Francisco State record-holder in the 10,000 meters. A true disciple of the sport, Mike is a well-known figure in the world of track & field. You can follow his daily feature on track and field history on his Facebook page.
