Jepkosgei, Lemma Take Virgin Money London Marathon Wins
The second-ever fall edition of the Virgin Money London Marathon today ended with victories for Kenya's Joyciline Jepkosgei and Ethiopia's Sisay Lemma, both first-time winners. Jepkosgei, who won the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon in her debut, controlled her effort carefully before dropping the field with a 4:56 24th mile to win in a personal best 2:17:43. Lemma also made a late-race surge just before 40 kilometers to win going away in 2:04:01.
