The top athletes were targeting the course record of 2:03:00, set last year by Kenya’s Evans Chebet, but fell short of that mark.

Cherono was able to secure the victory after a hard-fought last 500m where he passed Ethiopia’s Chalu Deso (2:05:16) and compatriot Philemon Kacheran (2:05:19).

Despite finishing off the podium, Kamworor managed to run his personal best of 2:05:23 when finishing fourth.

In the meantime, Nancy Jelagat won the women’s race with a time of 2:19:31. Ethiopia’s Etagegne Woldu (2:20:16) was second and Beyenu Degefa (2:23:04) third.
