Bolas posts first sub-4-minute Mile in Alaska history

September 14, 2013

Former University of Wisconsin All-American Jack Bolas (right, leading) leaves pacer Daniel Stockberger behind after lap 3 on his way to a 3:58.3 Mile in the Alaska Dome indoors on Friday afternoon, the 13th in Anchorage. It is believed to be the first time the Mile has ever been run in under 4 minutes in Alaska. The Dome time trial was sponsored by Skinny Raven Sports and New Balance, which sponsored a series of cross country races in Alaska this season.

Bolas, 25, now trains in South Carolina and owns a personal record 3:53.5 in the outdoor Mile, set at last Sunday's Minnesota Mile in Duluth.

At a race in Portland this summer, Kodiak's Trevor Dunbar, currently running for the University of Oregon, became the first Alaskan to finish the Mile in under 4 minutes, clocking 3:59.06.
