Ayele Abshero (Ethiopia) finished 4th in 2:06:31 just a second off a podium finish with Tsegaye Mekonnen (Ethiopia) rounding out the top 5 with a time of 2:08:06

Much heralded Brit Mo Farah making his marathon debut finished a very respectable 8th place in 2:08:21, just 15 seconds behind a tightly bunched group that would have garnered him 5th place.

Another success story to come from the marathon was American Ryan Vail who finished 10th overall in 2:10:57.
