Kipchoge, Cheruiyot celebrate Kenyan double in London

UK weather

Contesting her third marathon in a little over six months, Kosgei - who has run well in warm conditions in the past with two Honolulu Marathon titles to her credit - whittled her lifetime best down to 2:20:13 to ensure a Kenyan one-two in the elite women's race.

Kipchoge went on to win in Rotterdam and Chicago in 2014, London and Berlin in 2015, London and Rio Olympics in 2016 and a year ago he won in Monza in 2:00:25 under special conditions and Berlin in 2:03:32, missing the Dennis Kimetto world record (2:02:57) by just 35 seconds.

Farah was two minutes and four seconds behind victor Eliud Kipchoge with the four-time Olympic champion runing in his first marathon since retiring from the track.

Farah finished an impressive third in the race, which was won by Eliud Kipchoge, of Kenya.

That allowed compatriot Cheruiyot to take her first London crown, having won her first career marathon in Frankfurt only in October.

'The crowd really got behind me, it was an fantastic atmosphere.

"It was a hard way to run the pace because we were set for the world record pace at the beginning..."

The men's race went out at a blistering pace, and Farah stayed with the group until a weird incident when he missed his drinks bottle around the 10-mile (16-kilometer) mark, which delayed him after a heated exchange with a steward. "I had to get that right". "I was table four, but the staff was trying to take pictures and I was trying to take a drink".

Kenyan Mary Keitany and Ethiopian Tirunesh Dibaba - who had both hoped to break the 15-year-old record for best women's time - both finished further down the pack. He told the BBC: "I am knackered. So I raced like that".

Meanwhile, Great Britain's David Weir won the men's wheelchair race for an unprecedented
eighth time. The 38-year-old pipped Switzerland's Marcel Hug into second place, with Daniel Romanchuk of the United States third.
