On Labor Day, September 3, twelve Mizuno Athletes (eleven from the Mizuno Racing Team and one from Riadha) will race in the US National 20K Championships that will be held in New Haven, Connecticut. The competition serves as one of the races for the USATF to choose men and women to compete in the World Half Marathon Championships that will be held in Bulgaria on October 6th. Mizuno Racing Team athletes that will be competing are Christo Landry, Patrick Rizzo, Craig Leon, Zach Hine, Craig Curley, Serena Burla, Lindsey Scherf, Heidi Westover, Meghan Armstrong, Kristen Zaitz, and Loretta Kilmer. From Team Riadha, Amanda Mareno will be racing. Based on his finishes at the US National 15k (2nd), 25K (2nd) and US Cross Country Championships (7th) earlier this year, Christo Landry is in 4th place in the USATF Circuit point standings and based on who is entered in the 20K race, no matter what place any other runner finishes, if Christo Landry places first, second or third, he will become the new overall point leader in the prestigious USATF Circuit Standings. In 2010 Antonio Vega won the USATF Circuit Championship.
