Long Distance Update

Every Thursday I'll update my World Rankings for the long distances.  The 3000m-5000m rankings include outdoor 3k and 5k races, 5k and 4 mile road races, and indoor 3k races.   The  5000m-10,000m rankings include outdoor 5k and 10k races, indoor 5k races, cross country, and road races ranging from 8k to 12k.


I'm still working on getting the women's rankings together, so they'll have to wait until next week.
