CHRONOLOGICAL LISTING OF U.S. MILERS WHO HAVE BROKEN 4:00 IN THE MILE

Thanks to Track and Field News, a great look back at all the first time American sub 4 minute milers.  To date, there have been 366.  The list has definitely grown in the past few years as you will see.  See if you can find the runners who have some sort of Northern California connection.

Verzbicas?

It doesn't look like they have the five sub 4 minute high schoolers listed. I will find out why.

U.S. citizens only. Verzbicas is not yet a U.S. citizen. Note that Lagat's entry is not his first sub-4, but his first sub-4 as a U.S. citizen.
