Jim Ryun was the first US High School Miler to break 4 mintues in a High School Competition Only race. His 3:58.3 to win the mile at the 1965 Kansas High School State Meet is still the record for the fastest time ever in a race that includes only high school competitors. In 2011 Lucas Verzbicas also achieved the feat. Ironically it was in the Jim Ryun High School Dream Mile at Icahn Stadium in New York City in a time of 3:59:71
