In fact, the most successful year to date, with over 5750 registrants running total in the Marathon, half-marathon, 5K, marathon relay, marathon pump n run, half marathon pump n run, and the 5K pump n run.

The mens winner was Sammy Malakwen with a time of 2:15:41, while the womens winner was Ruth Kimutai with a time of 2:42:25, both very impressive times especially considering this year was one of the hottest QC Marathon races ever.
