From the very beginning Ricardo Estremera, 31, and Matt Brooker, 27, dominated the race and were significantly in the lead. When one would surge, the other followed. Each 5K point was run faster than the one before by it! It was not until the last mile that Ricardo Estremera charged ahead of Matt Brooker winning by 17 seconds. For the women, Mollie Turner, 37, bettered her 2016 third place performance by coming in first in 56:44 while Christie MacFarlane, 23, coming in second in 58:45.
