Near perfect racing conditions led to fast times and close top ten finishes Monday morning at the USATF 20 km Championships, as Olympian Leonard Korir and Stanford grad Sara Hall defended their titles in New Haven, Connecticut.

Hall used her experience on the New Haven course to race well within herself and ran to her second consecutive USATF 20 km Championship title, crossing the finish in 1:06:47, more than two minutes faster than her winning effort in 2018.

Behind Hall, Katy Jermann came home in second in 1:08:39, earning her best USATF Running Circuit finish, bettering her fifth place finish from the USATF Half Marathon Championships earlier this season.

Hall’s win added another 22.5 points to her USATF Running Circuit total, giving her 79.5 points overall, as well as her second consecutive victory after she won the USATF 10 km Championships.

Karis Jochen and Cardinal grad Jessica Tonn led the chase pack. While none of them made a move to go after Hall and Jermann, the race within a race shaped up to include a few dramatic finishes.

Jochen powered to the finish over the final mile to pull away from the chase pack, earning third place in 1:09:17. Tonn battled to the finish to take home fourth overall in 1:09:20.
