Run 1 mile under 5 minutes for the most consecutive years.

In 1976, Steve Spence first ran 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) at the age of 14. Since then, every year Spence has run like that, the best personal achievement is 3 minutes 59 seconds. Spence used to run a marathon (42,195km) with an average speed of 5 minutes 3 seconds per mile in 1990.

Maintaining a run of 1 mile under 5 minutes with Spence, a professional runner, easily for the first few decades. However, by 2008, age and health began to drag down Spence’s performance. He ran 1 mile under the 43rd annual minute in January 2018 with a time of 4 minutes 56 seconds. The 44th run was scheduled for January 2019, but Spence was postponed due to two injuries.

According to Let’s Run, a person claiming to be Spence said he completed the 44th run on August 28, arriving in California, USA, with a record of 4 minutes 53 seconds. He had tendonitis and recovered.
