Hastings, Landry Win U.S. 10K Champs At Peachtree

Christo Landry won the men’s title in 28:25, while Amy Hastings was the women’s winner in 32:16.

On one of the coolest days in the 45-year history of the AJC Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta, Christo Landry kept his hot streak alive, winning his third-consecutive title on the roads this year when he took the lead with 400 meters to go to win the race and the men’s USA 10K Championships in 28:25. Tyler Pennel would hang on to finish second in 28:30, with Shadrack Biwott catching Aaron Braun at the line for third. Both were given the same time, 28:52.

Winning the women’s race and USA 10K Championships was Amy Hastings, who seized the lead at the crest of Cardiac Hill and never relinquished it, breaking the tape in 32:16 for her first 10K road title. Hastings, 30, was on a streak of her own: the AJC Peachtree Road Race was her third 10K race in 21 days. Finishing second for the women was Sara Hall, 30, in 32:28, with Rachel Ward third in 32:36.

Winning the men’s masters division in the USA 10K Championships was Kevin Castille, 42, in 31:26, with Jen Rhines—making her masters debut after turning 40 earlier this week—winning on the women’s side in 33:04, good for seventh place overall in the women’s field.
