2018 report

Vivian Cheruiyot and Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya are the winners of the biggest and hottest London-Marathon ever. Wheelchar champions are Madison de Rosario (US) and once again British hero David Weir.

A record field of 40,188 runners finished the 38th London Marathon. Also the temperature of 24°c is a record. Just after 8 pm, clocking 9:33 h, the last runner got her medal. The rate of female participants increased to a record of 40.5%.

Male and female elites set off at world record pace with impressive half marathon splits of 1:01:00 and 1:07:16. But then they had to pay tribute to the heat of the day. Mary Keitany fell back to 5th place and 2:24:27, Tirunesh Dibaba quit. Vivian Cheruiyot kept calm at the beginning and made a constant high level race to a surprising win. She improved her PB by 5 minutes and is now the world's number 4 at 2:18:31.

Eliud Kipchoge reigned the race and cruised to a safe win after 2:04:17. 21-year-old Tola Kitata of Ethopia made it to second place after 2:04:49 and local hero Mo Farah fulfilled the expectations as 3rd on the podium and setting a new British record at 2:06:21.

Sadly the London Marathon had to confirm a tragic fatality. Matt Campbell (29), a chef from the Lake District and a sub-3h-runner, collapsed at mile 22 and died later in hospital. Matt ran in honour of his recently died father and fundraised for The Brathay Trust. Donations can be given at his
