Senior Sesar Figueroa and junior Calum Neff competed in the men's division, unattached, and recorded a time of 37:58, good for fifth place out of 17 runners.
Junior Paul Goodwin and sophomore Gus Forward ran together and combined a time of 39:39, finishing in 12th place. The final pair of Houston athletes to reach the finish line was senior Maurilio Sanchez and freshman Ben Cohen. The combination finished in 15th place with a combined time of 40:59.
