Yes it is.

If there are two between Annie and Carlos, they must be 1st and 4th. If Dante is before Annie, she can't be 1st, so must be 4th, so Carlos must be 1st.

Becca isn't 3rd, so must be 2nd, which leaves only Dante for 3rd.

Of course this is only true if there are exactly four runners, and that they all finished, and at different times, which the question doesn't specify.
