(Note #1: The 2 mile list has been verified by Jack Shepard of Track & Field News. Comment from J. Shepard; "Below is the original CCS 2-Mile list that was submitted. I have made additions and corrections to the list and have used a double indent for my new data. Disclaimers--1) I don't know what kind of conversion was done on the original list for 3200 to 2M, but there seem to be minor differences. I have used the conversion factor that we use at T&FN and therefore I have altered some of the times on the list. 2) You will notice that an inordinate number of the postal marks end in .0--this may mean that they were recorded from a running watch (we will never know which ones, unfortunately). 3) Doubt that I have come anywhere near all the marks for the list. Throughout the '90s my national lists stop at about 9:16-17 for 3200.")

Below you will find links to the Top 100 All-Time CCS marks, all conditions accepted.  What this means is
wind-aided as well as marks with no wind indicator (NWI) at the meets will be included in these lists.
If a mark is known to be wind-aided, it will be identified as such and the athletes best legal mark will
also be included.  Given that Electronic Timing and Wind Guages were not commonly used at large meets
in the 70's & 80's and is still not commonly used, I felt it unfair to not recognize those marks in 
the lists below.  There is also a Legal only Top 10 List that is maintained by Steve Nelson (Mt Pleasant)
if you want to see what the best 'legal' marks are.  This means that the two lists may be a little out
of sync with each other - but you at least know why.
