Brittney Barnes crossed the finish line next after Galvez. Barnes also ran the Fallen Heroes 5K in 2013, finishing sixth in the women's standing with a 23:45. In 2014 she trimmed more than three minutes from that mark, capturing the women's title with a 20:25, the fastest run ever by a woman in the Fallen Heroes 5K. Barnes needed that speed, though, because the second fastest woman in the history of the Fallen Heroes 5K wasn't far behind--Beth Miller ran 20:36 to finish fifth overall and runner-up to Barnes in the women's division. Mary Vancore was the third woman finisher and first woman master, coming in 12th overall in 22:23.
104 athletes finished the 2014 Fallen Heroes 5K.
