Millrose Games

The Millrose Games is an annual indoor track & field meet held each February in New York City. The storied meet started taking place at the Armory in Washington Heights in 2012, after being held at Madison Square Garden from 1914 to 2011. The games were launched in 1908 when employees of the New York City branch of Wanamaker's department store formed the Millrose Track Club to hold a meet. The featured event is the Wanamaker Mile (1926, men's first year and 1982, women's first year).
