Taipei, Jan. 15 (CNA) Runners from Kenya dominated the 2017 Kinmen Marathon on Sunday, taking the top place in both the men's and women's divisions.

George Mbugua Nguyen of Kenya completed the men's marathon in 2 hours, 20 minutes and 46 seconds to snatch the men's title, though he failed to improve on his personal best of 2:14:00 set in China.

Cecilia Wayua Michael took the women's title in 2:51:06, while Risper Lagat Chelagat, also from Kenya, came in second in a time of 2:52:06. Taiwan's Lin Yu-hsin (林于馨) finished third in 3:09:51.

The winners of the men's and women's divisions each earned NT$200,000 (US$6,338) in prize money.

Taiwan's best performance was a fourth place finish by Kinmen native Ho Chin-wen (何盡文) in the men's race, who finished in a time of 2:37:46.

His brother Ho Chin-ping (何盡平) won the men's title in the 21-km half marathon in 1:11:11.

About 22,000 runners participated in the event, which was extended to two days for the first time to give the runners more time to enjoy the sights in Kinmen.

The 5-kilometer and 11.2-kilometer runs were held on Saturday while the 21-kilometer half-marathon and 42.2-kilometer marathon were held Sunday.
