Kenyan Runners Wilson Kipsang And Mary Keitany win titles at NYC Marathon

Wilson Kipsang of Kenya has won the men’s title at the New York City Marathon. The former world-record holder has now won in Berlin, London and New York in just over 13 months.

Kipsang won in an unofficial time of 2 hours, 10 minutes, 59 seconds.

Mary Keitany of Kenya won the women’s title, overtaking countrywoman Jemima Sumgong with about a half-mile to go. It was her first marathon since 2012 after the birth of her second child.

Keitany won in an unofficial time of 2 hours, 25 minutes, 7 seconds — 3 seconds ahead of Sumgong, which would match the closest finish in the history of the women’s race.
