Huge congratulations to @sarahall3 & @emmajanelbates on their top 10 finish in the 2022 World Championships Marathon! 

Bates won CIM in 2018 with a 2:28:18 and Hall won in 2017 with a 2:28:10.

This year CIM will be hosting the 2022 USATF Marathon Championships. Who do you think will crown as the US Champion at CIM 2022?
