    She runs for Alabama.

      Yes, that's what I meant!

        Did anyone notice Callum Bolger's name, 100th place, Stanford? I remember him out-kicking Cooper Teare and Luis Grijalva at the 2017 CA State meet in Clovis. He ran 8:47.xx and the last lap was about 55. He has only run a few races since.

          Interesting, so lowest to highest elevation is about 60 ft. The course I was thinking of that I used to race on occasionally was in Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland and there is one Strava XC course I found here: https://www.strava.com/segments/3316626. This is not the course we ran back in the day - we started at the near the creek at the 320m elevation mark and ran up to about the 430m mark and then back down, so total elevation gain of around 110 meters, or 360ft, about six times what the OK course had.
          If this is anything like where you ran, that was an awesome XC course!

            From the front page article on Mantz:


            Only 7 men have finished in the top 10 four times and only 2 — Steve Prefontaine and Edward Cheserek, with 3 each — have more than a single title, so history beckons Mantz there as well.


            IIRC, Bob Kennedy won twice, in '88 and '92.

                I believe Gerry Lindgren and Henry Rono each have three titles.

                  Is the qualification in the sentence that the runner would have finished top 10 Four times AND won 2x or more? In that case, Rono's out because he finished last one year. I think Lindgren only ran 3 seasons of XC. Kennedy had a 3rd and a 5th as well as two wins.

                  There have been a number of other athletes who have won more than once and not mentioned so my suspicion is that it is 4 top tens and 2 titles amongst them.
