John Fredericks met the displeasure of the judges and was disqualified. Kevin Eastler (USAF) won in 1:25:15.

In other weekend action, Rich Leuttchau and Panse Geer were 3000m walk winners at the Osprey Open in 13:59.57 and 17:29.24 respectively. Thanks go to Richard Stockton College for including the walks in their meets.
