The second race sponsored by the newly formed Hudson-Mohawk Road Runner's Club saw a field of ten starters in spite of the heavy rain which persisted throughout the race. Bill Ghiorse won the race from a handicap of 6:00. Fanstin Baron came all the way from Utica to take best time prize. The wet road gave several runners problems with their shoes. Vern Hoffman had to stop on the second lap to retie his shoes. Although John Plant and Vern Hoffman each ran 20 mile workouts the previous day, handicapper Don Wilken was unimpressed and gave each 10 and 11 minute handicaps.
