Lagat is an eight-time winner of the Millrose’s Wanamaker Mile, but this year he has his sights set on Galen Rupp’s record of 13 minutes, 11.44 seconds. Rupp topped Lagat’s mark in the event in 2011 in Birmingham, England. Among the entrants in the 5,000 are Lawi Lalang, the NCAA cross country champion from Arizona and Leonard Korir, the NCAA indoor 5,000 champion from Iona.
The Millrose Games will be held Feb. 11.
