    Looks like it would have been the #2 U.S. time indoors or out last year.

          if you include marks made by collegians through august 31st chris solinsky has the fastest american born 5k record at 13:12.
          henry rono has the REAL ncaa record at 13:08

          rupp has an excellent shot at the REAL ncaa records in the 5 and 10k, either at stanford in may or a post ncaa outdoor meet in europe.

            Galen obviously also broke the American Collegiate Indoor Record, held by none other than Alberto Salazar (13:22.? from '81 Millrose).

              There's a name I have not heard in a while. I ran against him a few times in high school (our two schools were in the same league). No surprise - he was a bit better than me.

                Padilla - running when hit by a car. Pretty much smushed his lower body.Rehab for several years (and ongoing I suspect) Helps with track and xc programs at byu ("Director of Track & Field Operations")

                "On June 19th, 1996 at 4:32 pm, while on a 5 mile training run, I was hit by a car while crossing an intersection near my home. It was one of those things where circumstances just lined up so that the driver of the car and I could not see each other until the last second. My lower left leg was severely shattered. The tibia would not heal; some 20 cm had died. After over a year, the doctor's were at a standstill. We found a specialist who was willing to try bone transport to try to replace the dead bone. An external fixator was used and after over 2 years, we were successful. I can do most anything that I need to. I have limited range of motion in the ankle, which has limited my running. But, I can still run some. At one point I was up to 3 miles a day"

                    The year Riley and Hall went 1/2, 2/1 at NCAAs and USATF - does the latter race not count (~13:15/13:16) because it is 'extended season'?

                      Doesn't count in the T&FN books, but other statisticians do carry it. Of course, by using the old 8/31 cutoff point, they accept marks by people who have signed pro contracts and taken huge amounts of prize money as well. We somehow don't see that as "collegiate" competition.

                        If I'm reading all this correctly, then by that standard, you shouldn't even be accepting Webb's HS records, because he ran those records in meets where other competitors accepted prize money or appearance fees.

                        So long as the NCAA itself doesn't have a problem with this, I would sooner consider it an NCAA/Collegiate record, period, even if he were a Division II or III student, a junior college student or even an NAIA student. I don't see the point in the restriction you speak of at all.

                          By the way, with Galen tearing up distance running at the collegiate level, and Jordan Hasay going to the Land of the Ducks next year, and Andrew Wheating emerging as a new middle-distance star, is it safe to say that Oregon track is back? And how many points do you think they can score outdoors this year or next, on both sides?

                            13:22.6. He finished 2nd to Nyambui's WR 13:20.4 at the Millrose.

                              Great run by Rupp .

                              I hope it encourages the mediocre distance runners in GB that you can perform at high level by working smart and hard; you don't have to be East African. or even. have massive financial backing.

                              Wonder if Galen Rupp will break 27 mins this year or next. for 10 K
