A beloved figure at the institution, Phil Soule coached football at Bowdoin College for 39 years. He was an assistant coach in lacrosse, squash, and track in addition to football, and also served stints as the head coach for the baseball and wrestling teams. One of the founders of the Maine Rowdies running club, Phil was a competitive runner. Marathons, ultra-marathons, and triathlons were his favorite events. Phil's philosophy was to live each day to its fullest. The intent of the 5k "Phlail" is to live up to that belief.
