Wilson Kipsang Wins $600,000

Twenty six miles was not enough to separate Wilson Kipsang and Lelisa Desisa as they battled for the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon crown.

Not only was the $100,000 first place prize on the line, but Kipsang would win an additional $500,000 for the World Marathon Majors crown if he won.

Kipsang led coming back into the Central Park as they approached the finish, then Desisa battled back, and there was slight contact between them as Desisa took the lead. Kipsang then put in one final surge and the race was over, he was your winner in 2:10:59.

American Meb Keflezighi was the top American in fourth in 2:13:18 on a day the times were slow because of 20+ mph winds.

Top 50 men’s results below. (UPDATED)

Much more coming from LRC.
