A second consecutive Kenyan double in the elite men’s and women’s marathon brought the curtain down on two sun-drenched days of racing on the shores of Lake Geneva.

 

Thousands lined the finish of the Harmony Geneva Marathon for Unicef on the city’s iconic Pont du Mont Blanc to cheer home Kenyan winners Julius Chepkwony and Jane Kiptoo, the latter defending her title from last year.

 

All 16,000 competitors across eight different events enjoyed incredible support and perfect weather throughout the weekend.

 

Among those taking participating was Formula One driver and hometown hero Romain Grosjean, who ran the half marathon in 1:31:26.

Geneva locals turned out in record numbers on the hottest day of the year to support runners.
