    2. Basil Heatley (WR, Polytechnic marathon June 1964)
    6. Buddy Edelen (WR, Polytechnic marathon June 1963)
    15. Toru Terasawa (WR, Beppu-Oita marathon February 1963)
    19. Ron Hill (those who do not count Derek Clayton's Antwerp marathon performance as WR see Hill's 1970 Edinburgh 2:09:28 as WR -- I don't want to get into that debate, but will note that I would be one who counts Clayton's performance as WR, and thus I would not include this one. But reasonable people can disagree on this point...)

    Finally, though he of course established WRs in other distances, Ron Clarke finished 9th in this marathon.

    I will be interested in seeing what others contribute -- interesting question -- thanks!

    Thanks for this - not exactly what I was looking for, but stil interesting!

    What about if you count future WR holders in a race?

    Montreal 1976 wSP: Ivanka Khristova, Nadezhda Chizhova, Helena Fibingerova, Marianne Adam, Ilona Slupianek. And if you stretch the rules a bit, Eva Wilms (pentathlon WR) and Faina Melnik (discus WR) were also in that SP final.

    This looks pretty likely. Between 1960 and 1967 the following US vaulters all set WRs:
    Don Bragg
    George Davies
    John Uelses
    Dave Tork
    Brian Sternberg
    John Pennel
    Fred Hansen
    Bob Seagren
    Paul Wilson

    There must have been competitions in which at least 5 of them participated. Anyone got complete results of the US nationals from the 1960s?
