Ritz'z 14:10 from the 2000 Michigan State meet is most likely it. Second and third were 15:05 and 15:06 (third being Tim Moore who placed 8th at FLXC a few weeks later).

Gerry Lindgren. 16:08 on the Mt. SAC XC course. Works out to about 12:32 for 5k.

RWD: If you could go back and change one race, which race would it be? What would be the outcome?

GL: If I could go back and change one race, I would change the Olympic 10,000-meter race in 1964. Before that race, I had raced a four-mile race on the Mt. SAC cross country course. Someone came to our training camp and said there was a race at Mt. SAC that morning. Almost all the distance runners went down to get in a good workout. At the start I sprinted out at a controlled panic and kept up my panic through the whole race. My time of 16:08 over the four-mile course gave me an average mile pace of 4:02!...

I guess that could be true...if 55 seconds is well over a minute.

How would you know?

Even assuming all of the possible courses were measured correctly (big assumption), the courses still aren't identical.

So is Ritz's the fastest CROSS COUNTRY 5k ever? I didn't get a definitive answer from this.

Yes, nobody has run faster than that. The course he ran it on is pretty fast, but accurate.
