Obiri, who is preparing to defend her world 5000m title at the 2022 World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon, later this summer, ran steadily throughout the race before pulling away from McColgan and her fellow Kenyan compatriot Ruth Chepngetich in the closing meters.

McColgan finished with a late kick to not only overtake Chepngetich, but also grabbed the runner-up with a new British and European 10km record time of 30:19, breaking the previous mark set by Paula Radcliffe by two seconds.

Chepngetich, who ran with Obiri for most of the later part of the race before fading back, ended third in 30:29.

Sara Hall was the top American finisher in a time of 31:50.

Meanwhile, the men’s contest was won by New Zealand’s runner Jake Robertson who broke the tape at 28:06 before breaking into his postrace celebrations.

Australian Jack Reyner ran 28:16 for third with Antonio Abadia of Spain grabbing the last podium spot in third with 28:22.

The British top finisher was Abdulqani Sharif in fifth place and he stopped the clock at 28:29.
