Austin Fox had finished second to Berry College distance runner Kyle Harris in the 2013 Last Gasp, but the 2014 race was all Fox's. Running alone in the lead for most of the 3.1-mile circuit of Dothan's Westgate Park, Fox was more than 700 meters ahead of the next runner when he crossed the finish line in 17:33. Richie Fernandez took the runner-up spot in 20:27. Dale Thomas was the fastest master runner in the race, edging Rush Jones for third 20:51 to 20:56.
Kayla Fox's 21:41 was the fastest women's time at the Last Gasp since Dana Cody's 20:26 in the 2011 race, and it was fast enough to put Fox nearly 600 meters ahead of the next woman. C. J. Parrish was second in the women's standings, placing 11th overall in 24:36. Caroline Dunklin was the first woman finisher, coming in 16th overall in 26:22. The top woman master was Beverly Lovelady, fourth female and 18th overall in 26:45. And the fifth woman finisher was Chris Fox, the first female grand master and 21st overall in 27:11. Austin and Kayla are two of Chris's children.
Including all the Foxes, 62 athletes finished the 2014 Last Gasp 5K Trail Run.
