Just my opinion but 1500 times should not be converted any more than a 3000 meters should. Anyone who has run them knows there is a completely different feel between the two.

There are a lot of gaps, including the majority of the 2011 State Meet 1600 finalists who would make the list. One big omission from that race is Jatzan Oshier who ran 4:00.83 at that CA state meet.

I believe those were intermediate splits at the 1500 mark on the way to 1600 or mile.

Coach Small said...

I should learn to read, it's not an all-time list, each state only gets their record. Makes sense now.

Does show the awesome depth of CA though...
