Eliud Kipchoge (2:03:05) cut more than a minute and a half from his winning 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon time to defend his title in this year’s event.
More than 39,000 runners completed the course in England.
Earning runner-up honors for the second time in three year was Stanley Biwott with a time of 2:03:51.
He finished fourth a year ago.
Kenenisa Bekele (2:06:36) rounded out the top three.


For the women, it was Jemima Sumgong (2:22:58) shaking off a fall to finish just seconds ahead of Tigist Tufa (2:23:03) for first.
