We’ve teamed up with illustrator Paul Collicutt and have limited edition supermiler posters plus copies of The Murder Mile graphic novel up for grabs
From Walter George through to Hicham El Guerrouj, the May 1 sub-four special issue of AW features profiles of each athlete to have broken the mile world record.
Accompanying those profiles are unique illustrations drawn by Paul Collicutt. An athlete, artist and chairman of Brighton Phoenix AC, Collicutt is a former training partner of one of the supermilers featured – Steve Ovett.
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Roger Bannister’s milestone mark, we’ve teamed up with Collicutt to offer Athletics Weekly readers the chance to win an exclusive, high-quality print of his supermiler illustrations, plus a copy of his graphic comic book The Murder Mile. There are four limited edition printed posters up for grabs.
A detective drama, The Murder Mile is set during the era of Roger Bannister’s world record-breaking four-minute mile. The scene is Arizona, 1954, and runner Todd ‘The Phoenix Flyer’ Naylor is found dead. PI Daniel Stone’s investigations find him increasingly ensnared in a web of conspiracy, cartels and communists. See selfmadehero.com. The limited edition art print of the mile world record-holders is available at paulcollicutt.bigcartel.com.
To enter, simply answer this question:
Roger Bannister’s immortal 3:59.4 survived as the world record for little over a month, but who broke it and what was his time?
