The 1000th fastest high school 5k time for boys this past fall (2019) was 15:45. I assume about 3-4 times as many college kids can do that. That's just in the US, and only people in school. So, let's just give a low guess of 20,000 people globally can currently run that fast. If that trend has held true since 1970, then you've got 50 years of 20,000 15:45s or better, which lands you on a million.
