Kenyan long-distance runner, Geoffrey Kamworor, won the New York marathon this weekend with a time of 2:10:53. He holds very impressive long–distance records but couldn't manage to beat his best time of 2:06:12 of 2012. His running career has been successful thus far, and consists of 7 marathons in total, with a win in Tokyo early this year. 

The race was uncertain for a while as he fell behind Kipsang halfway through the race but managed to take the lead at the end of the race beating Kipsang by a couple of seconds. Kamworor said that this was a sterling victory for him because this was his ultimate goal after coming second in 2015. 

Shalane Flanagan claimed first place in the women's division with a time of 2:26:53. This win added to her shelf of many records held for the 300m, 5000m and 15km races. Although Flanagan is considering retirement after Sunday's marathon, the public waits in anticipation for her final decision.

Despite security being on high–alert due to the recent terror attacks, it seemed to be a successful event.
