Making his 10k road racing debut on New Year's Eve, Evan ran a strong race from start to finish, placing second overall in 28:56 at the San Silvestre Vallecana race. He ran with the lead pack for the entire race, only losing to defending champion Kaan Kigen Ozbilen (formerly Mike Kigen). Accompanied by 40,000 runners, the Madrid race ranks as one of the top 20 largest in the world.

Nike and Madrid sure know how to put on a road race!!! 40,000+ people! #werunmad @nikerunning
