Bates closes out its first undefeated indoor track season by beating MIT in Gray Cage, February 1958


Bates Cross Country and Track & Field has a long and outstanding history of excellence. College memorabilia offers programs from meets held in 1881; medals of Bates Olympic champions; awards and trophies; and much much more. After lots of research we have, here, pages devoted entirely to the history of Bates Running. Learn about Ray Buker, Class of 1923, and his journey to the 1924 Paris Olympics. Read about Osie Chapman, Class of 1931, and his participation on the seventy-five year old 4 x 800m relay record. Enjoy!
