Daniels calculator gives you 7.6 sec, so you get your sub 4:08. Check out the VDOT app.

Great debate going....I'm a former UT high school miler/2-miler...Here's my two cents. Way back in '77 in the BYU Invitational I ran 9:17, still the "official" state TWO MILE record because they made the switch to metrics a few years later. (My time is still in the books) State meet was in mid-May and 3 weeks later with just "maintaining" training I ran 9:01 for two miles at the International Prep Invit. in Chicago. So this is a 16 second drop. I think it points to at least SOME decent time conversion then from altitude to sea level.
Also, while we are at it, I need to get an opinion on this. Also in '77, I ran the mile at the University of Utah outdoor track, (Now where the U of U football Utes play). I ran a 4:14.4 mile. Here's the kicker- Race was at 5,000 ft. elevation (yes, the stadium track was higher up on the "bench" where the campus sits), second place was 4:25, and my last 400 was 60 seconds. Question: What does/would this convert to at sea level? I am thinking it's worth 4:08 or is that wishful thinking?
