Eliud Kipchoge (KEN) is the first man to win in London for the 4th time. Adding to this he improved his own course record to 2:02:37, the second fastest time in history. He was chased by two incredible Ethiopian runners. Mosinet Geremew is the fastest runner-up of all times, 2:02:55 makes him also the second fastest marathon runner after Eliud. Mule Wasihun placed third after 2:03:16, what would still have been a new course record.

In the ladies' race Brigid Kosgei (KEN) showed a breathtaking performance by running the second half in stunning 66:42, the fastest time any woman has run ever. Defending champion Vivian Cheruiyot (KEN) ran to second place in 2:20:14, the biggest gap between winner and runner-up since 2005. 21-year-old Roza Dereje (ETH) won the sprint for 3rd place on the podium after 2:20:51.
