Patrick Casey retired as a professional runner in 2021.

The 2014 USA 1500m national runner-up, won the 2017 inaugural The Wasatch Mile in Salt Lake City, recording 4:03 at altitude. In 2014, Casey clocked a 3:53.71 Mile, then a personal record, at the NIKE Prefontaine Classic. This huge PR came on the heels of an incredible May where he helped set an American record in the 4x1500m (14:40.80) at the inaugural IAAF World Relays and also set a 1500m PR with a 3:35.95 at the Oxy High Performance Meet.

He was a six-time state champion for Laurel High School in Montana.

FUN FACT: On February 4, 2011, Patrick ran the fastest Mile on Montana soil, clocking a 3:59.76 indoors at altitude (also his first sub-4).
