Wednesday night is the start of the second annual Valley's Fastest Man Series.
The event is made up of three one-mile races to determine who is the fastest man and women in the valley. Wednesday's race is at Kirby Park, followed by a run up Giants Despair on Aug. 22. The final race is the River Street Mile on Friday, Aug. 31.
The inaugural season last year attracted athletes that included an Argentine Olympian Claudia Camargo-Nero and USA National Triathlon Team member Kelly Ciravolo.
The 2011 men's title was won by NCAA All-American, Nick Hilton, who ran the River Street Mile in an astounding 4:14:11.
There is $5,000 in prize money for the series. The series has also established bonuses for setting record during the events.
