Under the shade of oak trees on a breezy afternoon, 10 elite runners stretched and warmed up outside of Lucas Winery. A long mile of Davis Road stretched out straight ahead of them. Each runner was determined to complete a mile in under four minutes, a feat that hasn't been accomplished in San Joaquin County since 1956. 

This was the scene at the Lodi Mile on Saturday, the inaugural road mile race open to amateurs and athletes alike. About 50 runners signed on to race a completely flat track that ended at Bare Ranch by Micheal David Winery.

    "The women’s division took to the track first. The crowd was enthusiastic watching them sprint their way to the finish line, but none were able to break the four minute mark."

    The women's world record in the mile is 4:12.56. The more you know.
