Results 2017

Mary Keitany and Daniel Wanjiru (KEN) are the winners of the 37th London Marathon 2017.


Mary Keitany wins London for the third time. In a brave race she attacks the world record right from the start. Split times of 15:31 for the first 5K and 66:54 for the first half prove her determination. At 2:17:01 she sets a new fabulous world record in a women-only marathon. She improves Paula Radcliffe's 12-year-old time by 41 seconds. Behind her Tirunesh Dibaba (ETH) becomes the 3rd fastest marathon woman in the world after 2:17:56.

The men's race produced an unexpected winner. Daniel Wanjiru strongly parried the final attack of favourite Kenenisa Bekele and won after 2:05:48 by a lead of 9 seconds.

The 37th London Marathon counts again a new record of participants. 39,406 runners finished the race, roughly 300 more than last year.

David Weir (UK) wins the wheel chair race for the 7th time.
