The event was run on the familiar part-road-and-part-trail course in Maclay Gardens that's used by many races, starting and finishing near Lake Hall. Moore was the first runner to make the turn out of the Lake Hall parking area, with challengers following close on his heels. By the end of the first kilometer, Moore had opened a few meters on the field with the trails ahead. Returning from the trails Moore had a commanding lead, almost 200 meters ahead of the runner in second position, Michael Kennett. Kennett, on the other hand, was only a few steps ahead of Pierce McCain. Over the final kilometer McCain overtook Kennett and actually made up some ground on Moore. But Moore hung on for the win, finishing 150 meters in front of runner-up McCain (19:46), while Kennett took third in 19:57.
Stacey Waters was the early leader among the women. Waters was overtaken on the trails in the middle of the race by Fran McLean, and then by Julie Clark. With a kilometer to go, McLean had a twenty-meter lead on Clark, who was twenty meters ahead of Waters. Driving for the finish, McLean extended her lead to finish over 100 meters ahead of Clark (22:58). Waters was third in 23:11 after fighting off a late challenge by Nancy Stedman (23:12).
