Matthew Centrowitz, who won the 1500m silver medal at the 2013 IAAF World Championships, and Mary Cain, the 17-year-old running sensation who turned professional late last year, headline the field for the upcoming NYRR Wanamaker Mile.

The race, to be held during the Millrose Games on Feb. 15, will also feature three-time Olympian Nick Willis and three-time USA champion Morgan Uceny.

Cain set the 1000m world indoor junior record two weeks ago and was originally slated to run the 800m race at the Millrose Games, but she changed her mind and will instead focus on the mile.

Alan Webb, who recently announced he is retiring from professional running and will switch to triathlon, will run the men’s mile in what the New York Road Runners are billing “his indoor track retirement race.”
