Garrett O'Toole '14 was recently honored with an invitation to run in the Dream Mile at the adidas Grand Prix in New York on June 14, 2014. The adidas Grand Prix is one of the premier track meets in the world. Of the approximately half a million high school students who run the mile, only the top 14 in the nation are invited to run the Dream Mile. It is an incredible accomplishment by Garrett, and even more so because it is his second appearance at the Dream Mile; last year, he was invited as the pacer rabbit. As the rabbit, Garrett took the field through the 400m in 60.47 and the 800m in 2:02.24 before dropping to an outer lane. He finished the race in 14th place with a time of 4:12.12.
The Dream Mile at the adidas Grand Prix will be held at the Icahn Stadium on Randall's Island, New York City, on June 14, 2014. Tune into Flo Track to watch coverage of the race.
