Trevor Dunbar’s professional career couldn’t have started any better.

A few days after clocking a sub-4 minute mile, the Kodiak High School graduate recorded the fastest 3,000-meter time in Alaska history at the Morton Games in Dublin, Ireland.

Dunbar finished second in the 20-man field with a time of 7 minutes, 45.09 seconds — personal-best by six seconds.

Dunbar’s time topped Don Clary’s 1982 time of 7:46.2. Dunbar and Clary are the only Alaskan runners to run a 3,000 under eight minutes.

On July 8, Dunbar ran the fastest mile by an Alaskan with a time of 3:57.19 in a meet in Cork, Ireland.

Dunbar, a recent University of Oregon graduate, has one more race in Europe. On July 19 he will run the 5,000 in Belgium.
