Fraser Sets Colorado Open State Mile Record

May 06, 2013

Altitude adjusted time equates to a 3:58.17 Mile

A runner from Boulder, Colo. broke the state record in the Mile over the weekend.

Rory Fraser completed the race in 4:03.99 at the St. Vrain Invitational track meet, held at Longmont High School.

It was a high school event, but organizers invited elite athletes for a chance to break the 4-minute barrier in the Mile. Officials used the NCAA’s convertor tool that accounts for elevation changes and when that was factored in, Fraser’s time was 3:58.17.

Fraser was given $2,500 for his performance, and he donated half to the Lyons and Longmont High Schools.

The previous Colorado record, set in 1976 by Ted Castaneda, was 4:04.86.
