On 6th May 1954 Roger Bannister became the first man to run a mile in under 4 minutes.The race was held at Iffley Road, Oxford.

Today is the 60th anniversary of that incredible day in athletics history and at the 5k this evening in Loughrea an accurate mile has been measured from the starting line. A large clock will be in place and you can take note of your own mile time.

Any chances of a sub-four minute mile tonight?????
