Dunbar places third, cashes in w/ Bring Back the Mile Tour
The 24-year-old runner finished in 4 minutes, 11 seconds on the rain-soaked course. He finished one second out of second and two seconds out of first.
The race is the second leg of the Bring Back the Mile Grand Prix Tour.
Dunbar, of Kodiak High fame, made Alaska running history in 2013 by becoming the first Alaskan to run a sub-four-minute mile [3:59.06].
He was an Alaska state champion in high school and an 8-time NCAA All-American in college.
Now he’s a professional, trying to make a living while trying to bring some of the mojo back to the mile.
The Bring Back the Mile Grand Prix Tour consists of four races with a total prize purse of more than $80,000 plus a $7,500 for the Grand Prix purse.
