Jet Ramos, one-fifth of the ironman athlete Ramos family, is the top winner in the 21K male clocking in at two hours, 42 minutes and 23.44 seconds. 

Last year’s champion, Louie Ganayan followed seconds later with two hours, 42 minutes and 29.67 seconds time on second place, improving his record from last year’s 03:22:34.86 time. Julius Magnaye trails him with three hours, one minute and 19.29 seconds on third place.
