2017 Patch Sprint champion Sean Davis has taken the winter title for the second time in three years.

The winter record of 2:36:11 was set by Jason Fiegl and Jan Wellford, in equally favorable conditions in 2016.
In December, three-time Patch winner Cole Starkey outpaced a record winter group of seven runners to take the early season lead, in a time just over three hours.
