I read where the World Record for the 5k for men is 12:37 and 14:11 for women but wonder if anyone knows the fastest run around here?

I would imagine Vicki Mitchell has the fastest time locally, but I do not know what it is.

In our BuffaloRunners database of local road race results, after eliminating the "noise" of short courses and other anomalies...

The top known 4 female performances are held by Vicki Mitchell. The next closest is by Allison Carr.

1. Victoria Mitchell, Snyder NY, 1st, 0:16:15, 9/02/1994, Nickel City 5K, Buffalo NY

5. Allison Carr, West Seneca NY, 1st, 0:17:03, 8/21/2004, Mississippi Mudd's

For the men, there is fellow named William Mangan who had three very fast performances locally in 1989 - 1990 but its not clear if he is actually a local runner. Maybe someone knows? I don't recall. He has listed hometowns of Niagara Falls NY and Albuquerque NM. There are also no less than 3 persons with the same name who are local runners, but not the same age, or quite as fast as this fellow.

Another complication is that a lot of guys ran real fast in college, like Peter Meindl, who clocked under 14 minutes for the 5K on the track, but we're just looking at the local 5K road races here...

1. William Mangan, Niagara Falls NY, 1st, 0:14:22, 5/26/1990, Viet Nam Veterans Leadership, Buffalo NY.

1. Dan Garrett, Williamsville NY, 1st, 0:14:30, 8/30/1991, Nickel City 5K.

2. Bernie Prabucki, West Seneca NY, 1st, 0:14:32, 9/08/1984, Buffalo Police Chase 5K.

2. Jim Dunlop, Jr., Getzville NY, 1st, 0:14:32, 9/07/1996, Buffalo Police Chase 5K.

2. David O'Keeffe, Orchard Park NY, 1st, 0:14:32, 9/11/1993, Buffalo Police Chase 5K.
