NEWS: All-American Miler Adam Fogg Potentially Out For Season, Comeback Still Possible


Drake’s Adam Fogg has announced via Instagram that he recently underwent an appendectomy, a surgery required to remove an infected appendix (a somewhat common condition called appendicitis).


The Stride Report then reached out for additional information.


Fogg, who has run 3:38 for 1500 meters this spring and was an All-American miler during the 2021 indoor track season, informed The Stride Report that he is expected to miss an extensive amount of training, potentially up to four weeks worth, for recovery.


Fogg anticipates that his season has likely ended early, although he maintains that there is a very small chance that he lines up for the West Regional Championships which begin on May 25th.


If Fogg’s outdoor track season has officially concluded, then the NCAA has now lost one of the best all-around milers in the country.

The Drake standout has run numerous sub-four marks in the mile and he has firmly established himself in the national picture for the men's 1500 meters this year.


Fogg has qualified for four NCAA Championships, three of which were on the track, since beginning his collegiate career at Drake in 2019.


Fogg has often exhibited phenomenal tactical awareness and, when paired with teammate Isaac Basten, has given Drake one of the nation’s best 1-2 punches in the mile and the 1500 meters.


If Fogg’s season has concluded, then the Bulldog standout expects to forgo his remaining NCAA eligibility in an effort to join a professional running group. However, a potential return to the collegiate circuit, while not expected, remains as a possibility.
