Peters finished more than 200 meters ahead of the next runner in the women's division, Fumiko Hedlund of Valdosta. Hedlund placed 13th overall in 23:36. The next runner across the line was Valdosta's Martha Mazurkiewicz. Mazurkiewicz edged out Debbie Green for the top female master honors, 24:02 to 24:15.
