(USA, Mar 10): Janet Cherbon-Bawcom was the big winner at USA 15-K
Championships, hosted by the Gate River Run. Not only did she win her
fourth USA road running title in six months, but she also held of men’s
champion Mo Trafeh who was unable to catch Cherobon-Bawcom who, like the
rest of the elite women, had been given a seven-minute head start.
Cherobon-Bawcom, who was timed in 49:41, owed at least some of her
success today to a resurgent Lindsey Scherf who led a pack of four
–including Cherobon-Bawcom, Maegan Krifchin and Molly Huddle– through 8
km in 26:51. By winning the race, Cherobon-Bawcom collected the $12,000
winner’s check plus the $5,000 “equalizer” bonus for beating all of the
men, a task made easier this year because the women’s head start had
been increased by two minutes. Huddle finished second in 49:57,
Krifchin third in 50:43, and Scherf fourth. For Trafeh, his victory in
Jacksonville was his third in a row. He now joins Meb Keflezighi (6) and
Todd Williams (5) as just one of only three men to win the USA 15-K
title at least three times.
