The 3.2-mile race featured a challenging 750 feet of elevation change.
Rees finished with an error of just five seconds, nipping David Kratzer by two seconds and Daniel Romero by nine seconds.
The top finisher on the long course was Alexander Romero, who completed the course in 25:07. Katie Gattiker was the fastest finishing female with her time of 43:49.
On the 1-mile course, Ben Rees was the top finisher with a 7:58 and Marin Kelly finished in 11:39.
