The 2.8-mile (freshmen/sophomore) and 3.3-mile (junior/senior) courses consisted of highly technical terrain including dry stream beds, significant elevation gains and single-track dirt trails.

The freshmen boys were led by Cameron Christy who finished in 24:35.56 followed closely by Quentin Dowler (28:15.15) and Gerik Wassmuth (28:58.22). Rounding out the roster, junior Mason Adams posted a 44:17.81 on the challenging 3.3-mile course. Junior Shailynn Winter also ran in the race but a time was not available.
