In the five-km race, the division winners were Kaylee Stewart (U-15),  Ryan Brodowski (16-19), Ensiana Vandenbrink (16-19), Chris Pop (20-29), Michelle Leppington (20-29), Trevor Thiessen (30-39), Missy Sheridan (30-39), Ron Antalek (40-49), Gillian Craven (40-49), Anthony Leyland (50-59), Deborah States (50-59), Lorne Walton (60+), and Connie McRae (60+).
