Each runner ran one-mile increments, getting rest while their partner ran, to complete the race. The course was set at Camp Kateri in McCool Junction. Each female ran three total miles, while the males ran four miles.
The Sterling College Warriors took the women's title, while the men's race belonged to York College.
