ATLANTA – (July 4, 2013) – The field of top American distance runners proved strong as Matt Tegenkamp and Janet Cherobon-Bawcom took home victories at the 2013 USA Men’s and Women’s 10K Championships on Thursday, July 4, with finish times of 28 minutes, 25 seconds and 32:45, respectively. The championships were hosted by the AJC Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta.

 

“We are honored to host the women’s championships for the first time as well as see the return of the men’s championships to the AJC Peachtree Road Race this year,” said Tracey Russell, race director for the AJC Peachtree Road Race and executive director of the Atlanta Track Club. “It was the first time both winners participated in the AJC Peachtree Road Race and we are thrilled they are able to take home the 2013 USA 10K championship title today.”

 

“It’s an honor to be a part of this great race,” said 2013 USA Men’s 10K champion Matt Tegenkamp.  “A lot of history is in this race and I am glad to be USA champion.”

 

“The weather conditions today were a lot better than everyone expected,” said 2013 USA Women’s 10K champion and Atlanta Track Club member Janet Cherobon-Bawcom.  “It’s been a beautiful day and we are all thankful for that.”

 

The professional field proved strong as Mosinet Geremew (ETH) and Lineth Chepkurui (KEN) took home victories at the 44th  running of the event, with finish times of 28:07 and 32:09 respectively. With more than 80 professional athletes competing, this year’s event boasted the largest professional field in recent history.

 

In the Masters (40 and older) races, Kevin Castille of Nicholasville, Ky. and Sheri Piers of Falmouth, Maine took the men’s and women’s titles with times of 29:41 and 34:55 respectively.
