It was a kenyan party, since Sunday was during the New York City Marathon in the american city.
At the men, it was Geoffrey Kamworor from Kenya, who ran the finish line first and won the race for the second time in his career, after he also in 2017 was the fastest maratondistancen in New York.
Sunday he thrust from the nearest pursuers, with about five kilometres to the goal and won in a time of 2 hours, 8 minutes and 13 seconds.
Thus he copied down, so to speak, the recipe from his own triumph at the Copenhagen Half Marathon in september, where he set a world record after the race solo for several kilometers towards the finish line.
Compatriot Albert Korir was number two in New York, while etiopieren Tamirat Tola came in at third place.
With women was the kenyan Joyciline Jepkosgei, who ran with the victory ahead of compatriot and defending champion, Mary Keitany, who thus missed his fifth title in New York.
It was Jepkosgei first konkurrenceløb on martondistancen, and she won in a time of 2 hours, 22 minutes and 38 seconds after she took off from the fellow with a few kilometers to the target.
Thus was she even close to the women's record in the race in New York, which was set in 2003 by Margaret Okayo with a time of 2 hours, 22 minutes and 31 seconds.
