HIGH SCHOOL MILE RECORD – Alan Webb of Virginia set the fastest mile record for a high school student when he clocked 3 minutes 53.43 seconds on May 27, 2001.

With the 1500 meter race taking over in track and field events throughout the world the above records may stand for quite some time.  To run a 4 minute mile a 1500 runner would need to be able run a 3:42.43.
