Masters Of The Mile

2015 Millrose Games

It was 1994 when Eamonn Coghlan became the first Masters athlete to do a sub four-minute-mile, forty years after Bannister’s miracle mile. It was indoors at Harvard University. His 3:58.15 was to last 20 years. It was not until June 4, 2012, that a Masters sub four was finally done outdoors by Britain’s Anthony Whiteman, with 3:58.79 in Nashville.

Bernard Lagat had not run an indoor mile for four years, but did an incredible 3:54.91 at the Millrose Games on February 14, to break Coghlan’s historic record. It looked like Coghlan’s record of seven Wanamaker mile wins was also invincible until Lagat got that with eight victories in 2010.
