The Top 10 Finishers At The 2017 TCS NYC Marathon

Runners make their way toward the NYC Marathon finish line in Central Park.

It’s A Win For American Women At The NYC Marathon

More than 50,000 athletes ran strong through all five boroughs of New York City today. It was an important day for American distance running–for several reasons. Before the race began, Americans knew that this would be the last time they’d get to cheer Meb Keflezighi, as NYC was to be his final career marathon (he finished 11th in the professional men’s field). American Olympian Shalane Flanagan was poised to give defending NYC champion Mary Keitany a run for her money–and won, becoming the first American woman to win the NYC Marathon since 1977. Finally, the marathon served as a display of strength for New Yorkers, who were the target of a terrorist attack last week.

The 2017 TCS NYC Marathon was a celebration of the running community and the resilience of the human spirit. Thousands crossed the finish line today–and leading the way were the elite runners, the professional athletes who are the spokesmen and women for the running community. Here are the top 10 finishers of each professional field.
