After his fast opening mile, Sam Morgenstern ran a consistent 5:30 pace for the 2nd and 3rd miles which helped him maintain his position over the final two-thirds of the race. He finished in 62nd place with a time of 16:36.5. Colby Rubischko and Hunter Dunne were able to maintain their paces over the final mile as well, passing 10 people each over the final mile to finish in 16:55.7 (104th) and 16:56.5 (108th), respectively.
