Dhruvil Patel Might Be The 13x All-American, 6x National Champ You Haven’t Heard Of

A little bit of love for the Division III listeners who requested Dhruvil Patel as a guest on the show. He is a 13x All-American, 6x individual NCAA champion, 5x team champion and NCAA Division III record holder in the 5,000 meters with his 13:51 personal best. He has also run 28:50 for 10,000 meters.

On this show, we discuss how he came to the sport, what led to his breakout at North Central under coach Al Carius, how he feels about the Division III label and what’s the future look like for someone like him who wants to pursue a post-collegiate career.
