The North won for the second year in a row. No one takes this very seriously. Many runners from Virginia ran for the North.

|Finishers under 10 hours||39||16|
Each runner finishing under 10 hours scores for his or her side. If the runner is from the side with the greater number of entrants (the North, as it was in 1861 and is now), he or she will score one point. If the person is from the side with the smaller troop strength (the South), the score will be proportionally larger to account for the lesser troop strength.
