PINKHAM NOTCH, N.H. -- Billerica native Dave Dunham and Plaistow, N.H.'s Craig Fram will be inducted into the Mount Washington Road Race Hall of Fame on June 21.
The fifth annual induction ceremony, at the base of the Mt. Washington auto road, recognizes outstanding performers in the footrace to the summit of the highest peak in the northeastern United States.
The ceremony will take place after the race, which starts at 9 a.m. and will attract some 1,300 runners.
Dunham first ran Mt. Washington in 1988, winning the race and becoming the first person to run under 1:01 with a course record of 1:00:50. He won again the following year in what is still the closest finish in the history of the race, beating Hall of Famer Bob Hodge of Lowell by one second.
He won for a third time in 1994 passing the early leaders in the second half as they succumbed to the scorching heat. He still holds several age group records and in 2006 published "Only One Hill", a history of the Mt. Washington road race.
Fram, the 1997 champion, is the leading money winner in race history and also holds several age group records. He's finished in the top 10 seven times.
