Remembering Roger Bannister
Sir Roger Bannister, famous as the first human to run a mile in under 4 minutes on May 6, 1954, passed away on March 3, 2018.
Rev. Dr. George Dole, Fryeburg, Maine native and namesake of the Dole 3 Miler, ran in that historic race. George was interviewed after Bannister's passing by the Portland Press Herald. Enjoy the resulting article here.
Remembrances of Sir Roger Bannister from Lord Sebastian Coe and Steve Cram, two more recent British middle distance greats, can be enjoyed here.

The Fourth Annual Dole 3 Miler took place Saturday, August 5, 2017
The Dole 3 Miler is a new tradition—a three-mile road race in early August in Fryeburg, Maine—a celebration of the life and loves of Fryeburg native, Rev. Dr. George F. Dole. George was one of six runners in perhaps the most famous road race in history, Roger Bannister's Four Minute Mile which took place in Oxford, England on May 6, 1954.
The Fifth Annual Dole 3 Miler will take place Saturday, August 11, 2018!
