The 2017 Indoor Mile Series was another success despite the shortened season. Three meets instead of the usual four due to a shortened Penn State home schedule. Great participation, great racing, and one Series Record. Coreen Steinbach came in to town and took a couple of seconds off the Series Women's Masters 3K record. Jaimie Wright won the women's overall Series with a combimed time of 11:22.27, followed closely by Series regulars Rita Marie Concannon and Tari Elkin in 11:23.56 and 11:28.53, respectively. No Masters women ran two races to claim an overall Series title, but Meira Minard turned in a 5:42.28 for the best Master's time. Harriet Smith only came for one race and had the best Series single mile time of 5:14.60.

Among the men, Series regular Justin Wager won the Men's title in 8:48.69. Second went to Andrew Sell in 8:59.28 and third place belonged to Vince Fadale in 9:02.68. The Master's Men's title belonged to Rob Liebers in 10:34.33, followed by Costas Maranas and Keith Henderson in 10:35.49 and 12:42.54, respectively. The best single mile times were run by Justin Wager in 4:22.70 and in the Master's, Rob Liebers in 5:13.15.
