Did you know?

  • Roger Bannister was the first person to ever run the mile under 4:00 minutes
  • His time was 3:59.4 on May 6th, 1954
  • Most sports scholars at that time believed that no one would ever break that barrier and thought it to be an unimaginable feat
  • Doctors at that time thought the human body could not hold up under the pressure of running that fast.
  • Shortly after Bannister’s race, one of his running competitors John Landy from Austrailia also broke the 4 minute mile.
  • Did you know that running and walking can make you live a longer, healthier life?
