Kodiak’s Trevor Dunbar clocked his second mile under four minutes in his professional debut Tuesday in Ireland.

Running in the Cork City Sports International Athletics Meet, Dunbar ran the mile in 3 minutes, 57.19 seconds. He finished third behind two other Americans Merber Kyle (3:56.72) and Masters Riley (3:56.75).

Last July, Dunbar became the first Alaskan to run a sub-4 mile by clocking a 3:59.06 in a meet in Oregon. Before that, Dunbar’s father, Marcus, was the fastest Alaskan with a time of 4:00.58.

Tuesday’s 15-man field consisted of runners from the U.S., Romania, Australia, Canada, Ireland and Slovenia.

Dunbar is scheduled to race two more times in Europe. He is running the 3,000 meters on July 11 in Dublin, Ireland and the 5,000 on July 19 in Heusden Belgium.

Last week, Dunbar concluded his University of Oregon career with a sixth-place finish in the 5,000 at the USA Track and Field Championships in Sacramento, California.
