Past Dole 3 Miler Winners!

 

The Rev. Dr. George F. Dole Celebration Road Race, a.k.a The Dole 3 Miler, is held the middle Saturday of camp at 8:00 a.m. on the Mountain Division Rail Trail directly across Rte 302 from the FNCA.

On May 6, 1954, Roger Bannister became the first person to run a mile in under four minutes. Fryeburg ME native and life-long FNCA member and core lecturer Rev. Dr. George F. Dole also ran in that historic race, placing 5th with a time of 4:25. Sixty years later, in 2014, this new race was created to celebrate the life and achievements of Rev. Dole --- now in his 80's and still running today.
