Deep Fields Set For Adidas Dream Miles On June 2

Casey Clinger, Dalton Hengst and Austin Hindman are among the high school middle-distance stars set to compete in the adidas boys Dream Mile, while Taylor Roe leads a roster for the girls Dream Mile that includes Lexy Halladay, Brie Oakley and Allie Schadler. 

The Dream Miles are expected to be among the highlights of the adidas Boost Boston Games/Somerville, set for Dilboy Memorial Stadium on Friday, June 2, beginning at 5 p.m. Tickets, at $10, are available at, and will again include a post-race barbecue where fans can get autographs and sel es with world-class athletes. The first 1,000 ticket-buyers will also receive a free T-shirt.

Since it began in 2010 as part of the adidas Grand Prix in NYC, the adidas Dream Miles have been among the deepest and fastest in the nation. Last year, the girls Dream Mile was switched to a 1500m, and winner Kate Murphy of Lake Braddock, VA, not only qualified for the U.S. Olympic Trials, but also ran #1 time in the country for 2016.

In 2015, the boys Dream Mile featured five of the six fastest high school times of the year, while the girls Dream Mile produced four of the top five. Perhaps the highlight of the Dream Miles so far has been the victory by Lukas Verzbicas in 2011 in 3:59.71, making him just the fifth US high school athlete to run a sub-4-minute mile.

In the adidas boys Dream Mile, Casey Clinger (American Fork, UT) is a two-time national cross country champion who finished the season ranked US No. 1 in the 1600m indoors, while Dalton Hengst (Owings Mills, MD) is the 2017 Penn Relays Mile winner, the 2017 state champion at 800m, 1600m and 3200m indoors and outdoors, and just last weekend won the Caribbean Scholastic Invitational 1500m in Havana, Cuba. Austin Hindman (Wildwood, MO) is ranked US No. 2 in the 3200m, is the 2017 state champion at 800m, 1600m and 3200m, and is the reigning ITU World Junior Champion in the triathlon.
