Kenya’s Mary Keitany won the New York City Marathon becoming the first women to win three straight titles since Grete Waitz.
Keitany pulled away around the 15th mile and finished with an unofficial time of 2:24:26, one second behind her time last year. Waites won five straight titles from 1982 to 1986.
The first man to finish the race was a 20 year old from Eritrea, finishing in 2:07:51. He is now the youngest male winner in New York.
