About This Activity

The Eighth Annual Dole 3 Miler is a celebration of George Dole's accomplishments as an elite runner in 1954. George was in the pole position during the race when Roger Bannister broke the 4-minute mile. This 3 mile down and back race along the Fryeburg Rail Trail is a family friendly event organized by the Fryeburg New Church Assembly at 84 Main Street in Fryeburg, Maine.  Fun for elite runners and first time participants, families and we celebrate athletes over the age of 80.  Prizes in the past have included $200 gift certificates to Tracksmith https://www.tracksmith.com/pages/about and $50 gift certificates from New Balance https://www.newbalance.com/plus a commemorative t-shirt and a handcrafted sturdley.

We are including a Virtual Race again this year.  Virtual participants will receive a t-shirt and a sturdley but will NOT be eligible for additional prizes.

The in person race on August 14th will follow all current Covid 19 guidelines.
