Logan St. John Kletter made history on Thursday night at the HOKA Festival of Miles.

In a race that saw Allie Zealand break the national record, Logan St. John Kletter posted a 4:37.44 mile with a 4:35.86 enroute 1600m split.

With that enroute mark, St. John Kletter broke a five-year-old record set by Taryn Parks (Greencastle-Antrim 20') at the 2019 PIAA Championship. There, Parks ran a 4:37.07 1600m.

St. John Kletter was just off of Kim Gallagher's (Upper Dublin) 1982 Mile Record of 4:36.94. That record will continue to stand for the time being, making it one of the longest running records in PA History at 42 years of age.

Earlier in the evening, Alli DeLisi (Penn Charter) ran a personal best 4:48.19 to place fourth in the Elite Girls Mile. Her enroute 4:46.22 1600m is the third fastest in Pennsylvania this year behind Logan St. John Kletter and Olivia Cieslak.
