The male race had a fair amount of separation between runners at the front, the female race displayed a similar trend.

The front of the male race was a constant stream of runners every30-60 seconds. Any let-up and you would likely see a blur of running mass passing on your left.  Patrick Hitchins guided all runners with his 6:22 min/mile pace to win the male race in 39:37. Just over one minute later, Waylon Calabrese (2011 Nueces 25 km – 1:59:12) dashed across the line with a 40:39.

Top 5 male

  1. Patrick Hitchins – 39:37
  2. Waylon Calabrese – 40:39
  3. Matt Demartino – 41:33
  4. Alan Langham – 42:08
  5. Dan Carroll – 43:15

My guess at Patrick Hitchins. Too much denim hiding the number. 🙂 (Photo: Copyright Josh Baker / azulox.com)
