AnswerKenenisa Bekele of Ethiopia holds the world record in the 5000 meters (3.1 miles), 12:37.35. The IAAF no longer keeps track of events measured in English units with the exception of the mile run.
5000 ft = 1524 metres.
Bill Misner (age 67) ran 2-miles 16:29 above 5000' elevation at Cascade Lake Idaho 2007, twice as slow as 20 year runner Steve Prefontaine's World Record 8:15.

13:43 is the fastest I have found so far, by Sammy Wanjiru. I actually looked that up earlier today after reading runner's world. 13:49 was fastest this past season.
