Patrick Ford (1:24:16) and Nicholas Chapel (1:25:09) were the second and third place male finishers. Carly Martz (1:32:52) and Beth Marzigliano (1:35:38) were the second and third place female finishers.

Amanda Marino was the overall winner in the 5K race with a time of 17:35. Katelyn Mcmurray (21:28) and Marypat Coan (23:56) were the second and third place female finishers.
