The Mens 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.
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.
