The Men’s Race

BERWICK, PA--Nick Hilton, Flagstaff, Arizona, was a man on a mission. Hilton had traversed the Diamonds course once before, in 2011. After nine grueling miles, Hilton had lost by just one second. He had given his all, but came up just short of the big prize. Hilton was determined to not let that happen again!

Hilton took the lead during the opening mile and was relentless in his quest to win the first place diamond ring. “That second place finish I suffered three years ago sat in the back of my head all this time. After I got out of college, all I wanted to do was run this race again...and win,” declared Hilton. Mission accomplished!

Hilton won the race going away. In so doing, he won by 54 seconds. His winning time (44:39) was the fastest time on the course since 1993.
