The Oregon Track Club presents inaugural Sub-4 Reunion
Celebrating the men who broke 4 minutes in the Mile and ran for legendary coach Bill Bowerman from 1956-70
From Oregon Track Club
Ten runners from the University of Oregon: Jim Bailey, Jim Grelle, Dyrol Burleson, Keith Forman, Archie San Romani, Wade Bell, Dave Wilborn, Arne Kvalheim, Roscoe Divine and Steve Savage broke the 4 minute Mile barrier under the tutelage of iconic track & field coach Bill Bowerman from 1956 to 1970 – and each of them has a fascinating story to tell.
On Friday, May 27, we’ll celebrate the accomplishments of those athletes at the inaugural Sub-4 Reunion, a fund-raiser for the Oregon Track Club to be held at the Jaqua Center from 5:30-7:30pm.
Tickets are $25 for the public, $20 for OTC members, and free to attendees that have ever run a sub-4 Mile. UO catering will provide appetizers and Hop Valley Brewing Company will debut a Sub 4 Ale, brewed in honor of this special occasion.
The social hour begins at 5:30pm, followed by a panel discussion with all 10 athletes at 6:30pm. Oregon Track Club Elite teammates Andrew Wheating and Tom Farrell will serve as emcees.
The event concludes at 7:30pm when everyone can make the short walk to Hayward Field to watch all of the free events on the first night of the 42nd Prefontaine Classic.
