Aspiring marathoner Enoch Nadler won the first year event event, running 4:40. It wasn't close to Nadler's mile PR of 4:08, but it was fast enough to put the former UF Gator distance runner across the finish line ahead of runner-up Mike Hensley of the Florida Track Club. Hensley ran 4:43. Just behind him, Gainesville's Bobby Hensley dueled Roy Spradlin of Cooper City for third, with Hensley getting the nod 4:48 to 4:50.
In another close-fought battle, Dan Monteau took the top master spot over Rob Robins, both runners clocked in 5:23, taking seventh and eighth place overall. The third master in the race, Dan Stoner, was just a few steps back in 5:25, coming in ninth overall.
There were no close finishes at the top of the women's standings. Betsy Suda ran 5:30 to take the women's title, placing tenth overall and finishing 150 meters ahead of the next female athlete. Mandy Harrell was the women's runner-up, sixteenth overall in 6:04. Kelly Shaer was third in the women's standings, 21st overall in 6:23. Elisabeth Diamond of Bell, Florida, was the top woman master and eighth female finisher, 33rd overall in 7:27.
