Seven Team USATF athletes came away victorious in their events on a cool and overcast day that couldn't dampen the ardor of vociferous fans in a sold-out stadium, and all-time lists across the spectrum took a beating.

In very warm weather with temperatures of well over 20 Celsius any hopes for a record race did not materialize. Ebenyo led a Kenyan clean sweep with a winning time of 59:30. Amos Kurgat (59:42) and Isaia Lasoi took second and third with 59:42 and 59:47 respectively. 19 year-old newcomer Tekle Muluat became the surprise champion with 66:53. Fellow-Ethiopian Ftaw Zeray was second with 67:22 and Germany’s Melat Kejeta took third place in 67:26.
