“I never actually ran a 10K before this, so it was a new experience for me,” he said. “I don’t even do running races, so it was pretty surprising that I won. It was a lot of fun.”
Gorman is 18 and resides in Salt Lake City. James Stull from Anchorage, Alaska, placed second in 45:09.
Meghan Sheridan from Salt Lake City was an impressive third overall and the first female for the 10K. She finished in 46:01, just one day after placing second in the 30-34 age division at the XTERRA USA Championship triathlon.
“I got second place in the triathlon and wanted a chance at a gold medal,” she said. “I live right in Salt Lake and never did this race before so I said why not.”
Sheridan said she was surprised to finish first overall, although she was familiar with the course because it followed much of the same trails during the triathlon.
“I was surprised I had it in me,” she said. “I could barely do the run (for the triathlon). It was really, really painful. But I usually have a little bit of energy the next day, so I kept going.”
Chris Parker from Ogden took top honors in the 5K, finishing in 26:50 – which was more than a minute ahead of the rest of the field. Hannah Ross from Sandy was the top female in the 5K, and fourth overall in 29:29.
