Tonight at Varsity Stadium in Toronto, fans will be treated to the Festival of Excellence, the biggest track meet in Toronto since the World's Fastest Man 150m race in 1997.

In addition to some big international stars, Guelph Running will be well represented by several athletes, including Eric Gillis, Hillary Stellingwerff, Rob Watson, Taylor Milne and Kyle Boorsma.

There's even a triathlon, although I don't think any of those guys can swim.

Check out this interview with Kyle Boorsma and 2008 Olympian Taylor Milne as they talk about attempting to run under 4 minutes for the mile tonight, and follow Speed River Twitter for competition updates.
