Awards were given to the top-three male and female runners, as well as the top-two male and female runners in the following age groups: 12 and under; 13-19; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60-69 and 70 and over. The course began near the North Carolina Estuarium, ran along Main Street, over the bridge near Havens Gardens and looped back around via Riverside Drive.
