Former University of Oregon running star Trevor Dunbar returned to his old stomping grounds and put on a show.

Dunbar and current NCAA champion and former teammate Edward Cheserek crushed it on the track en route to crushing the field in the men’s 3,000 meters at historic Hayward Field.

Cheserek won in 7:57.97. Dunbar was second in 7:58.73.

They were the only two runners in the field of 18 to break the 8-minute mark. The third place runner crossed in 8:17.

Dunbar, of Kodiak High fame, was a NCAA All-American for Ducks before completing his college career last year. Now he’s a professional and sponsored by Nike.

Older brother Miles Dunbar was third running unattached in the 3,000-meter steeplechase in 9:27.72.
