The 21st Annual Spillway Classic Trail Run saw a record turnout of just under 1500 participants and a new course record for the womens' division. Malia Cali of St. Thomas Aquinas High School set the record with a time of 18:28. The previous womens' course record of 18:37 was set by Santilla Victorian in 1996. Brendan Minihan, Jr. won the mens' overall title for the seventh time with a time of 16:53.

The weather was very warm; the course rating was 3.5 with the course being mostly dry. This did not stop many runners from finding what little mud and water was available on course to blend in with.

Thanks to our presenting sponsor Phidippides Sports in Metairie and the NOTC volunteers, officers and board members and the many other sponsors for making this event the great success that it is.
