All-Time Week: Boys Top 100 VCP Marks For 4K


One of the legends of the sport in the Northeast, it's no surprise Edward Cheserek (St. Benedict's Prep) is the fastest athlete to ever test the backhills of Van Cortlandt Park.  The first athlete to ever break 12mins, only one other athlete has managed to do the same, on either the 4K Manhattan Layout or the equivalent 2.5 Mile CHSAA layout.  We've taken the times from both formats, and listed out the All-Time best ever marks.  Check them out below.
