San Jose Relays 1977 Mile -- Stillman 4:11.54

The following video is posted at www.lynbrooksports.com.  It was originally posted on youtube by John Sup of Palma who still holds the 15th fastest mile in CCS at 4:12.01.

Check out the 2 turn stagger at the start of the mile race below in 1977 race.  Mark Stillman of Willow Glen still holds the CCS record for the mile at 4:07.04 (converted to auto time from 4:06.9) and was CA state champion in 1977.  You can check out the CCS top 100 list in the mile here:  http://www.dyestatcal.com/ATHLETICS/TRACK/ccs1600b.htm

the 4:07.04 is a hand mile time (4:06.9) converted to FAT (+.14) so it's not a 1600 at all, it's a full mile. Until over 50% of the marks on the Top 100 list are run in a 1600 race (currently there are just over 30 1600's that make the list), I will continue to report the Top 100 as a full mile.
