Record Possibilities at the 2023 USATF Masters 1 Mile Championships at Indianapolis IN

June 11, 2023 The originally scheduled 1 Mile Championships at Rochester NY had to be cancelled due to events out of the control of the organizers. Beyond Monumental, the organization that hosts the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon and Half Marathon in early November, offered to host the 1 Mile Championships on June 24, 2023. They hosted their first Marathon in 2008. They have also run a Half Marathon, at least since 2009, adding a 5K along the way. They have also run the Indy Half Marathon at Fort Ben in October. In 2013, they hosted their first road mile, the Indianapolis Monumental Mile, placing it in June. By 2017 the Marathon and Half Marathon combined were attracting over 12,000 entrants. 

Women's Race at the 2022 USATF Masters 1 Mile Championships hosted by the Rochester Mile

The original Monumental Mile course was a straight shot down Meridian Avenue to Monument Circle, ala the Fifth Avenue Mile. It was fast, very slightly downhill, and not record eligible. That was, coincidentally, the first year that the 1 Mile was approved as a record eligible distance for Masters runners. The Masters LDR Committee held their first national 1 Mile Championship in Pittsburgh PA that year. The course in Pittsburgh was record eligible and flat, with just two 90 degree turns. Some of the records set there in 2013 still stand. In 2014, the Championship was moved to a Friday evening in August as part of the Michigan Mile/Crim Festival of Races weekend in Flint MI. They hosted the event through 2019. After the Covid interruption to racing, Rochester NY's Rochester Mile became the host in 2022, in conjunction with a USA Cycling Criterium event.  When the local sponsor of that event cancelled its plans for 2023, the local organizers, despite heroic efforts, were unable to host the event in 2023. This will be the first year since 2014 that the 1 Mile Championships will be held on a flat, record eligible course with just two 90-degree turns.

Although there is still a week and a half to register, it appears that several age division American Records are at risk. Here is the complete list of current American Records for both Men and Women, as posted at:

Not to put pressure on anyone, but, with several days of registration yet to go, a number of American Record holders at the Mile distance are entered.

Sabra Harvey 65-69 American 1 Mile Record holder and Jeannie Rice, 70-74 American 1 Mile Record holder respectively, are entered in the Women's race. Harvey has the tougher task ahead of her. Rice set the 70-74 record 4 years ago in Flint at 6:24. It is six years since Harvey ran her 6:06 to set the 65-69 record. Rice, on the other hand, could run 2 minutes slower than she did in 2019, and still set the record for 75-79 year olds, and she could run three minutes slower and set the record for 75-79 in a Women's only race. Considering that Rice just ran Boston, into a moderate headwind, in 3:33:15, averaging 8:08 per mile, a new Women's 75-79 record seems almost inevitable. Harvey is running well, but not at the level she was running in 2016 through 2018. She was the USATF Masters Athlete of the Year in 2017. In 2017, she set that 1 Mile record of 6:06. Age-Grading suggests the equivalent performance for Harvey now that she is 74 rather than 68, would be 6:40, 14 seconds slower than Rice's 70-74 record. Most likely Harvey is focused on running well for her Team Red Lizard and will let any records take care of themselves. Harvey recently ran a 5 Km in 23:57. That, too, suggests running a Mile in less than 6:40 would be a big ask.

Doug Goodhue, now in the 80-84 division, holds the American 70-74 12 Km Record and, more relevantly, the 70-74 One Mile Record at 5:43. Were he running as intensively as he was in 2013, the 80-84 record of 7:08 would be well within his reach. His 5:43 projects up to 6:53 for an 81-year-old who could achieve the same age grade. But Goodhue is coming back from knee surgery and has had some hamstring problems. He took some time off from training after the 5 Km Championships in Atlanta. He, like Harvey, will be primarily looking for team points in Indy. Although with Goodhue, you can never tell!

So far, those are the only Road Mile American Record Holders entered. There is one Indoor American 1 Mile record holder entered, David Westenberg. Westenberg broke the 65-69 Indoor Mile Record last December in Boston with a 5:10.61 effort. That is a good 7 seconds under the existing road mark. Last year at Rochester, Westenberg ran a 5:15, so cracking 5:18 outdoors on the roads is, by no means, guaranteed. The course at Indy should be faster. Whether the Sports Committee and the LOC opt for one or two waves for Masters Men, could also make a difference. Running in a smaller 60+ wave should thin out the crowd through which top 65+ runners navigate. That could be important from the start through the first turn. There will also be competitive pressure within the age division. Two runners who excel at longer distances on the road are dropping down to test their fast-twitch muscles. As that last note suggests, we need to look beyond existing record holders to see if other records are likely to be threatened.

40-44 Katie Sherron, who won the Masters race at the 2021 Club Cross Championships in Tallahassee is probably the top entrant so far. Based on a recent 17:34 5K, Sherron may threaten the 5:00 barrier but anything much below that is likely to be out of reach. Two other entrants, Angela Giuliani and Hid Gaff, are strong runners but are not likely to press Sherron. Neither Andrea Pomaranski's 4:47 nor Magdalena Lewy-Boulet's Women's only 4:50 appear to be threatened.

45-49 Euleen Josiah-Tanner finished 3rd in 45-49 in Atlanta at the 5 Km Championships and ran 11:19, while finishing 4th in the 3000 meters at the WMA Indoor Championships. She is the strongest entrant so far. Josiah-Tanner should be well under 6:00, and probably under 5:55, but Sonja Friend-Uhl's 5:07 record is not at risk.

50-54 Cassandra Crane is the sole entrant at this point in this division. Her aim is mostly oon the team competition. Along with two Genesee Valley Harrier teammates entered in the 55-59 division, she is looking for a strong showing in the 50+ team division. Doreen McCoubrie's 5:18 shouold be safe for a while longer. 

55-59 Marisa Sutera Strange's 55-59 1-Mile American Record of 5:27 is in danger. Fiona Bayly does not currently hold any 1 Mile records, but she did just break Marisa Sutera Strange's 55-59 course record at the USATF Masters 10 Km Championships. And she is the 55-59 American Record holder in the 8 Km and 15 Km. She clocked the 30:05 8K at the end of July last year in the NYRR Team Champs race and recorded a 58:55 at the Ted Corbitt 15K in NY last December. In early September she ran 5:19 to win her division at the Fifth Avenue Mile. The Fifth Avenue Mile is considered one of the fastest Road Miles. A straight-shot event, it is not record eligible. Bayly will have some competition in the division.

Jennifer Harvey, like Bayly, from New York City, ran a 5:29 at the Libert1y Mile in Pittsburgh last July. This March, she turned in a 5:23 indoor Mile at the NYRR Night at the Races. She should be able to push Bayly; if they can push each other, maybe Bayly or Harvey would have a record at the end of the day. It is a sign of the strength of the field in this division already that Lisa Veneziano, who holds the 12 Km American record at 46:13.

Veneziano finished 2nd to Bayly last year in 5:40. She could run faster this year and still only finish 3rd. Veneziano loves to compete though, so we will have to see how things unfold on race day!

60-64 Suzanne La Burt, new to the 60-64 division, will battle Deb Torneden, at least, for the win. La Burt ran 5:57 at Rochester last year, finishing 3rd in 55-59 behind Michelle Rohl and Veneziano. La Burt ran two seconds faster two months later at the Big Bang Mile. Torneden ran 6:01 at the Ad Astra Mile around St Patrick's Day. Her winning 5:36 in the 1500 Meter Run at the USATF Masters Indoor Championships this past March is also consistent with a low 6-minute mile. Torneden ran that one from the front, so the time is probably a good indicator for a track effort. Kathy Martin's 5:44 AR does not yet seem to be at risk.

65-69 Carol Poenisch ran a 24:21 5K in late May, after running a 25:26 at the Corktown 5K in Detroit just before St Pat's Day. If Poenisch is on the upswing, a sub-7 Mile should be possible. That makes her the favorite among current entrants but Harvey's 6:06 looks safe for a while longer.

70-74 Harvey, as noted above, is the favorite. Not only does she hold the 60-64 American Mile record, she also ran a 23:57 5 K in April. That suggests a sub-7-minute mile is likely for Harvey but that a sub-6:30 is probably not within her reach. Her main focus will be leading her Red Lizard teammates in for a team win, assuming they have a 3rd teammate poised to make the trip. Rice's 6:26 record should be secure.

75-79 As noted, Rice continues to amaze on the roads. Her 3:33:15 Boston Marathon this year provides ample evidence of that. On a day that was not conducive to a fast Boston Marathon Rice averaged 8:08 per mile for the 26.22 miles. The 75-79 American Record for the Mile is 8:36, and 9:46 for a Women's only race. Both should be obliterated on the 24th! Rice continues to inspire in terms of what is possible for humans as we age!

80-84 No entries as yet.

85-89 Joyce Hodges-Hite goes after her fourth victory this year in the Masters National Grand Prix. Her 13:37 1500-Meter Run in last year's Senior Games suggests something around 15 minutes seems possible. Regardless of the time, Hodges-Hite will establish a new American Record once she finishes the event!

40-44 As a 39-year-old in 2022, Mark Guyer won the Open Division of the Monumental Mile in 4:24.05! The aging effect suggests that converts to a 4:26 this year. But such small changes can be overcome by other effects related to conditioning and the exact weather and racing conditions on the day. Jaret Herter and Thomas Burns will give chase. Herter finished 3rd overall last year in Rochester at 4:35 but followed that with a 4:29 at the Main Street Memorial Mile in Pennsylvania. His 4:18 at the USATF Masters Indoor Championships in Louisville converts to a 4:37 Mile. It seems probable he would run a faster Mile this June than in March. In fact, at the Main Street Memorial Mile this May he ran almost 7 seconds faster than last year. That suggests a sub 4:30 mile might not be out of reach for Herter in Indy. Burns finished 16th overall in the highly competitive Club Cross Country Championships, contributing key points for his team's win in San Francisco. At the USATF Indoor Championships in March, Burns edged Herter for 2nd by a half second! The American 40-44 Mile record of 4:22 set by Neville Davey will likely last beyond the weekend but it could be close.

45-49 The three main protagonists should be David Angell, Christopher Hernandez, and Jasen Ritter. Angell spent much of 2021 and 2022 either injured or rehabbing long standing ankle/foot issues. Following a PRP treatment after cross nationals in Richmond, Angell appeared to be back in top form with a 3rd place overall finish at Dedham in 33:15. If we go back to a 5 km in 2021, Angell's 15:43 at age 44, equates to a 4:38. Using the age grade calculator allows me to say that is equivalent, roughly, to a 4:42 for a 46-year-old at the same level of fitness. The 33:15 10 Km is more recent but further away in distance covered. That time equates, roughly, to a 4:50 Mile. Hernandez ran 4:48 to finish 3rd in the division at Rochester last year. Ritter, also, seems to fit into that same range. He ran 4:44 in the 2021 Monumental Mile. Aging that up to 2023 as with Angell's 5Km gives us a 4:49. Angell appears to be the favorite among those three. A sub-4:24 to take down the record is not in the cards.

50-54 Mike Madsen, 46 at the time, finished 2nd overall, losing to a Chuck Schneekloth lean at the tape, at the 2019 Masters 1 Mile Championships in Flint. He recorded a 4:37. He is back! If all has gone well with his prep, Madsen has a shot at taking down the 4:40 AR of Alan Wells

From Left: Mike Madsen edged for the Overall Win in the Men's Race by Chuck Schneekloth at the 2019 USATF Masters Mile Championships at the Michigan Mile in Flint MI, hosted by the HAP Crim Festival of Races

The primary result in favor of that quest is Madsen's 4:46 in winning the Masters title at the 4th of July Downtown Mile in Flagstaff, AZ last summer. The NCAA has an altitude adjustment calculator to convert high altitude performances to equivalent ones at sea level. That calculator suggests that Madsen's 4:46 was roughly equivalent to a 4:36 at sea level. An extra year of age could add a couple of seconds but that would still leave Madsen under 4:40. No one else entered at present seems likely to run much under 5:30.

55-59 Christian Cushing-murray is interrupting his busy social calendar to make a quick trip to Indy. Flying in on Friday and back in the air by 12:30 pm after the race, he needs the race to go off on time! Then all he has to do is run a 4:48 or better and he is under the American Record. 'Cush' is one of the very few athletes to have had an exceptional professional career and then continue competing as a top Masters athlete through his 50's. At the 1500 Meter Olympic Trials of 1992, he placed 6th*. His best 1500 Meter time was 3:37.94 and his best Mile time was 3:55.2. As a Masters athlete, from 2009 to 2013, he owned the Masters title at1 the Carlsbad 5000. His fastest victory was a 14:40 that netted him the Overall, not just Masters, win in the non-Elite section. But perhaps his sweetest victory came in 2016, when he took the title in the Masters race with a 15:11 at age 48! Six years later, in 2022, he won the 50-54 5 Km national title on an 'Atlanta-flat' course in 16:42. Two months later he would run 15 seconds faster at Carlsbad, again winning the 50-54 division.

Cushing-murray would be the first to say, that was then this is now. The 55-59 record is 4:49, set by Nat Larson in 2017 at the 1 Mile Championships in Flint. Cushing-murray was at the Portland Track Festival last weekend to go after the 4:36.94 track record for the Mile. At 4:39.28 he came up short. But that suggests a 4:48 or better mile is in his wheelhouse right now. Todd Straka, who clocked a 4:34.84 Indoor 1500 Meters at the USATF Championships this past March, has a good shot at breaking 5 minutes but cannot push Cushing-murray to a sub-4:48.

60-64 Unless Nat Larson is a late entry, his American Record, set at the Big Bang Mile in New Jersey last July, is secure. Larson is the leading 60-64 distance runner right now from the Mile to the Half Marathon. Two very strong runners are entered, Joe Mora and Rick Lee. They went 1-2 last year in 60-64 at Rochester, with both receiving the same rounded up time of 5:04. Lee is a tremendous runner at all distances, up through the Comrades 55-Mile race he contested this past weekend. But Mora is the wilier miler and typically has the better kick. After a tough Comrades race, Lee declared that no harm was done and that he will be ready for the Mile on the 24th. Lee has done quicker turnarounds from Ultras in the past. It will be interesting to see if Steve Schmidt and/or John Van Danacker show up to compete. At the 5 Km Championship in Atlanta, that Larson and Mora both missed, it was Lee-Van Danacker-Schmidt, separated by just 6 seconds!

65-69 As noted above, David Westenberg is the leading Miler entered and will be trying his best to get the American Record set by Tom Bernhard at 5:18 in 2016 at the Championships in Flint. The 5:10.61 Mile, that he ran indoors last December to take the American Record, shows that he has an excellent shot at the road record of 5:18. Jacob Nur has been breaking 65-69 American Records left and right. He currently holds American Records at 5 Km, 10 Km, 10 Miles, and Half Marathon. If he could run as well for a Mile as he runs for a 5 Km, his age grade equivalent mile to his 17:00 record would be about 4:59. But he ran the Mile of Truth in Danville, CA on May 8th in 5:19. It appears to be his first 1 Mile race since 2014. If so, he may have been using it as a time trial/test run. 

Jacob Nur finishes off his 58:34 American 65-69 Record run at the 2022 USATF Masters 10 Mile Championships at the Sactown Ten Miler, hosted by the Sacramento Running Association SRA Photo courtesy of SRA

Even at 5:19, he can press Westenberg. If Nur can run under 5:15, the 65-69 division will have a 'barn-burner' of a race down Meridian Street toward Monument Circle!

70-74 The only division rival who has been able to beat Robert Qualls at any race from a mile to a half marathon over the last year, has been Nolan Shaheed, who turned the trick in Rochester last year when he edged Qualls for the 70-74 title, 5:39 to 5:40. 

Robert 'Jerry' Qualls approaching the finish line and the 70-74 Win at the 2022 USATF Masters 12 Km Championships at the By Hook or By Crook Race in Highlands, NJ, hosted by USATF New Jersey Photo courtesy of Jason Timochko

That would have given Shaheed the record had the course measurement held up under post-race verification. Perhaps Shaheed will register to compete again? Whether he does or not, Qualls should be poised to run under the 5:43 American Record posted by Doug Goodhue at the first USATF Masters 1 Mile Championships in Pittsburgh. 

75-79 So far, Dave Glass and Jim May have the strongest Mile credentials of the entrants. They went 2-3 at Rochester last year in 6:37 and 6:38 (gun times). Keith Yeates's strong performance in Atlanta, finishing 2nd in 23:31, suggests he can break 7:00 but it seems unlikely that he could keep pace with Glass, or with May if he runs as he did last year. But Yeates has beaten May at the races they have both run this year. The big question is whether either of the two Gary's will enter. Gary Patton won the event last year in Rochester with a 5:59 (net)/6:02 (gun) time. He holds the record at 5:56, set in 2021. If he enters and the stars align, he might be able to lower that mark. But first he has to enter. The other Gary, Gary Ostwald, has won the last four Masters LDR events he has entered. At Club Cross and at Cross Nationals, he won with a kick to the finish that allowed him to catch and pass the leader in one case and kick away from a rival. At the 10 Km, he again was able to kick away from all rivals up the last rise to the finish. The character of those victories suggest he would be a formidable opponent in the Mile, should he enter. None of the current entrants can threaten Patton's American Record, and that would probably still be true even if Ostwald entered.

80-84 The 70-74 record holder in the mile, Doug Goodhue is entered. If he had been running continuously without issues, he would be a strong favorite to take down the American record. The 80-84 mark was set by Sherwood Sagedahl in 2019 in Minneapolis. But Goodhue had knee surgery last December, was coming back from it and had some good training leading into Atlanta. But his hamstring was bothering him over the last week or so before the race and it acted up during warm-ups. He still won the race in 26:27. He then purposely took a few weeks off to make sure the hamstring was recovered before resuming serious training. Goodhue is still the favorite to take the win, as long as the hamstring does not act up during the race, but breaking the record might be a stretch too far. We shall see.

85-89 Adrian Craven is the lone entrant at this point. Last year he won this division at Rochester in 10:40. Ordinary aging from 85 to 86, according to the age grading tables, could add 20 seconds to that time. Even if he could repeat the 10:40, which would be quite an achievement, he would not be able to threaten the record. It is currently shared by Louis Lodovico and John Desenberg, who ran their 10:11 record times in 2013 and 2019 respectively.

Based on those currently entered, anywhere from zero to seven athletes might run faster than the existing American Records. It would be impressive if the top number is reached!


Luckily the Monumental Mile has tracked its records; not all races do that. With some events, the course and event records are the same. That was true for the Monumental Mile up through 2021. They then altered their course from straight-shot down Meridian Street to a record-eligible layout with two 90-degree turns. The Event records cover both the straight-shot and the record-eligible course. The Course Records are just from the fastest runner in the division last year. Many of the Course Records are very approachable for a nationally competitive runner. That is also true of some of the Event Records as there have been no elite Masters fields in years past. But there is one record from the straight-shot years, when it was not record-eligible that is three seconds faster than the Men's 45-49 American Record. Steve Maki ran 4:21 in 2015. No one is likely to touch that this year! But the Course Record for that same age division is 6:05. At least 7 of the 9 athletes currently entered will, almost surely, run faster than the course record. Take a look at the Event and Course Records posted below. This could be a runner's big chance to brag that they beat the Course Record (and/or Event record) at the USATF Masters National 1 Mile Championships...and that will be true even if several other runners in the division come in ahead! It also means that athletes who do not quite get that American Record they were shooting for, may get the consolation prize of an Event or Course record. Pick out a record and see if you can crush it!

  1. Kevin Castille has a drug ban. His "record" should not be listed here.

    1. If you visit the USATF LDR Records site, you will see that Castille is still credited with the record. It was set 2 years before the drug testing that led Castille to accept a USADA sanction. Some feel a drug sanction should lead to any prior records being invalidated. But that is, apparently, not the way the rules are written. I struggle with these kinds of issues. In many of my articles I have noted that a person finished 2nd to an athlete who later accepted a USADA sanction.
