2016 Miami Marathon and Half Marathon

A chilly morning (for South Florida standards) led to ideal running conditions.

The Miami Marathon and Half Marathon took place Sunday in some cold temperatures—relatively speaking, of course.

While much of the east coast was buried in snow, runners in Miami started the race in 46-degree weather, a record low for the 14th annual race.

The men’s marathon winner was Benazzouz Slimani of Morocco, who won in 2:24:56 just two days after turning 40. The women’s winner was Allison Kieffer, a New Yorker who signed up for the race as a winter getaway but entered the elite field the day before the race for a chance at more prize money, according to the Miami Herald. She finished in 2:55:31.

Stephen Njoroge of Kenya won the men’s half marathon in 1:05:08, while Santa Ines Melchor Surquillo of Peru won the women’s half in 1:13:52.
