Both Leon and Curley were using Gate River as a final tuneup before the Boston Marathon on April 21st. Another Mizuno runner–Elliott Krause of Madison, Wisconsin–finished 18th in 45:52. David Fuentes of Team Mizuno–Texas placed 25th in 46:20.
The only Mizuno Race Team woman in the race was Renee Metivier Baillie of Bend, Oregon. Metivier Baillie continued her comeback from injury by placing 30th in 54:56.
