    Elevation 5920! (no, that is not factorial, which is a REALLY big number; the on-line calculators give 10^100+ for 140!, and infinity beyond that (it is never infinite). As a simple approximation it is much greater than 10^18,000) - Conor?

      He ran it at sea level, Oregon Relays. But still.

      I was about to post a thread about Colorado HS track after seeing his result, then saw this thread. We are having some good performances. Michael Mooney (Broomfield, CO) ran 8:50 to win the 3200 at Arcadia. Cruz Culpepper (Niwot) (Alan and Shayne Culpepper's son) won the mile at Arcadia in 4:13.14 with James Lee (Silver Creek) second in 4:13.94. At the Mullen Invitational in Denver last weekend, Cole Sprout won the 1600 in 4:12.75 with Carter Dillon second in 4:12.91, 59 second last lap! Unfortunately, two are 5A and three are 4A so all five won't meet head to head at State.

      Anna Hall (Valor Christian, same as Sprout) won the New Balance Indoor Nationals HJ, now has run 42.03(A) for 400H (2nd in the US). She is headed for a career in the heptathlon. Her father, Dave Hall, is still 5th on U of Michigan's all-time decathlon list with 7034 points. Max Manson (Pat Manson's son)(Monarch) vaulted 16' 10", and Arria Minor (Denver East, state champ 100, 200, and 400 as a frosh and soph) has put up good times, though (A) and (W) aided.

      News, with a video of Sprout in the Mullen 1600:

        Just wondering how it compares to Eric Hulst's 8:50.6 2-mile from 1974?

          Give me the long-hand version of this, because you lost me after "Elevation 5920".

            Damn. Mooney is in 5A and Sprout in 4A. They won't meet at State.

              The "!" is the math function Factorial. n! = 1*2*3*...*(n-1)*n. It gets large real fast and the symbol has more uses than the one often utilized by aaronk.

              1! =1, 5!= 120, 10!=3,628,800, 15!=~1,310,000,000,000, 50!=10^64, 100!=10^158, 170!=~10^306, so you can sort of 'imagine' how large 5920! is. Note that 10^306 is 1 with 306 zeros before the decimal point.

                OK, nomination for worst thread hijacking of all time! (factorial)

                  Use Stirling's Formula and it's done...

                  Or use the Gamma Function...

                    I understood the math symbols but I don't understand how all this relates to gh's post. Was this some humor that went over my head because I didn't realize you were joking?

                        can I be the first to ask what we'll say when Master Sprout runs in the Van Damme Memorial for the first time?

                            5920! =



                            Of course that is only the first 130 or so digits...

                              And what if Cole runs for UTEP?
