Fernando Cabada, who also won this race back in 2006, took the men's title in 1:15:41.

Even though Cabada holds the American record in the 25k, he wasn't talked about as a pre-race favorite. Instead, most of the focus was on last year's champion Andrew Carlson and last year's runner up Nick Arciniaga.
