May 4th will mark the 10th annual 4-Way 5K walk / run & 10K run hosted my the Rotary Club of Bath. Last year the name of the race was changed to honor Rev. George Dole, a long time Bath Rotarian who in 1954, while studying at Oxford University in England, ran in the race in which Roger Bannister broke the 4-minute mile. A lifelong runner, George won his age category in several of our races. George passed away just shy of his 90th birthday on June 29th, 2021.
