“An Alaskan Mile”

Watch as 8 runners head to Alaska in a quest to break 4 minutes in the mile

What happens when eight top American mile runners head to The Last Frontier state in a quest to record the first sub-4-minute mile ever run outdoors on Alaskan soil? Watch this compelling video from Max Romey and RunGum that shows how the runners unify behind a common goal while embracing all that is Alaska—including cold, rainy, windy weather. The movement is spearheaded by Trevor Dunbar, who grew up in Alaska and ran a now-legendary 2-mile time trial in the snow before heading to Oregon for his collegiate and pro career.
