2015 U.S. 10-Mile Championship

Early Sunday morning, before the start of the Twin Cities Marathon in Minnesota, some of the top distance runners in the U.S. competed in the Medtronic TC 10 Mile, which played host to the USATF 10-Mile Championship. The race started in downtown Minneapolis and finished in St. Paul.

In addition to the men’s and women’s race was the “Equalizer Bonus,” where the women started 6:18 in front of the men and the overall winner, male or female, received a $10,000 bonus. The women’s winner, Molly Huddle, ended up winning the bonus as well, crossing in 51:44 ahead of Neely Spence Gracey (53:03) and Alexi Pappas (53:10). Sam Chelanga, who recently became a U.S. citizen, captured his first U.S. title, winning the men’s race in 46:47, one second ahead of Tyler Pennel, and six seconds ahead of Dathan Ritzenhein.
