RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
Racer 1,

In answer to your hill length question:

Around Iten where Cherono lives there are many, many hills that fit the criteria. At the Kamariny stadium Renato refers to you can literally run off the track at the end of the back straight and go over the edge of a steep hill.

You can do any combination of hills you want in this place.

A few other hills spring to mind of much more than 1 mile. Most of them are dirt roads/tracks but they could also use the tarmac hill which comes up the Elgeyo Escarpment from Tambach.

Tambach is in the floor of the rift valley about 3000feet below the top of the escarpment on which Iten sits. If you do this one from the bottom to the top it is nearly 15km.

Hope this helps.
