14 year old Evey Powell from England blew away the field clocking 30:31 to win the women's division. 7th best time ever. Her mom cheering her on from the infield.

Anthony Cortes from Half Moon Bay is the current Double King. Since he won the first leg, he is wearing the yellow jersey. Jose Pina beat him in the 3k leg but only by a few seconds and Anthony held his lead and beat Jose Pina by 21 seconds. He won the recent Golden Gate Double 8K, Brisbane Double 15k in April 2022 and Palo Alto Double 15k in December 2021. He will be running the Palo Alto Double 15k Dec 17, 2022. Can he make it four in a row?
