Geoffrey Kamworor has won the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon, crossing the finish line in Central Park in 2:08:13. The Kenyan marathoner was followed by countryman Albert Korir and Ethiopian Girma Gebre. Their times were 2:08:36 and 2:08:38.
More than 50,000 other marathoners finished behind them in the 49th edition of the NYC Marathon run in near-perfect conditions: sunny, mid-40s, low humidity, and cooling breezes.
The course record, 2:05:06, was set in 2011 by Kenyan Geoffrey Mutai. It was never challenged today, as the leaders passed the half-marathon in a cautious 1:04:47.
Joyciline Jepkosgei, 26, of Kenya, won the women’s race in 2:22:38, a record time for a first attempt at the race.
The three podium finishers received prize awards of $100,000, $60,000, and $40,000, plus time-bonuses.
