Thats pretty good. When I was a 6th grader my time was around yours. Right now im at 4:49 and a sophmore in highschool. Keep it up and by the time your my age you might be running 4:30 for the mile

That is a good time. Especially if you're female.

when i was in 5th grade my mile time was...let's see...10 something? now im in 11th grade and its about 5:30. especially if you don't train that much, that's a really good time for someone your age.

I'd venture to say it doesn't really matter what your mile time is in 5th grade...you will grow and change so much. I dropped two minutes between 5th and 6th grade on zero training. That's just the way our bodies are.

My sister is in 5th grade and runs around the low side of a 8 minute mile. She has one of the top mile times of the county! So if you have a 7 minute mile, you're doing really well for 5th grade.

My 4th grade daughter's fastest mile is 7:20 (but probably could be a few seconds faster). No other 9-year old Oklahoma female ran a faster 5K than her last year (24:21), and no 10-year old OK female has run faster than her 24:27 so far this year. There are several girls 1-2 years older than her who can beat her though. There is one other 10-year old from down in the southern part of the state (in a town with lots of GREAT young female runners (12-13) who may eventually run a faster 5K than my daughter this year...she's already beaten her at the 3K distance late last year.

I don't remember my fifth grade mile time, but my 6th grade PR in gym class was 10:49, then 7th grade gym class was 7:58, with absolutely no training. Now my mile PR is 6:31 but I think it could be better if I hadn't been injured for the past year.

in 6th grade i ran a 7:20, right around where you are. Now I'm a sophomore (female) training for the first time and my PR's a 6:10. Your time sounds good, if you train you can definitly go far with it.

I ran 8 somethin. But I was short, small, and goofed around for the whole mile.
I had a friend who ran somewhere around 6 minutes. 6:10 or less. But he was tall, fast, and goofed around the whole time as well.
That was............dude that was 7 years ago!!!!!!!!!!!
I just graduated from high school and I'm still goofing around.

I'm coaching a couple of boys one (5th grade one 6th grade) who just ran 5:32 1500m this weekend - translates to a mile in 5:54. and I have a 6th grade girl who ran a 5:54 1500 (6:21 mile) and a 4th grade girl who ran a 6:12 1500m (6:40 mile)

runnergurlie, yes that is a very good time for an 8th grade girl it would beat the best time a girl in my meets had (6:28) by 26 seconds.

I am in 6th grade and I did a 4:01 mile. All you have to do is to train hard every day, slowly increase your milage.

supercaulking there is no way you ran a 4:01 mile as a 6th grader, either you are a liar or it was a typo.

super - you didn't have to get nasty, I was just trying to surmise if you were a liar or simply made a mistake, since you didn't post what you actually did in your response I can only assume you are a nasty little liar

ljwood made a good point, when your in fifth grade, it is hard to gauge your skills, because you could still grow alot, and change your style.

my 2nd grade daughter recently ran 7:45 - i did think this is kinda fast for a 2nd grader, but there was another girl with 7:48 or so from her class. I heard there was a boy in 5th or 8th grade (not sure) who ran 5:47

An 8-year old boy from my daughter's running club ran a 5:27 1500 meters last weekend at the state AAU meet. An 8-year old girl from her club also ran a 5:45 1500 meters at the same meet. They both would have finished very high in age groups much older than them.
