The winners of the 43rd Warsaw Marathon over the distance of 42 km and 195 m were Yared Shegumo and Monika Andrzejczak. Shegumo from Ethiopia, representing Poland, achieved a time of 2:14.38, while Andrzejczak - 2:31.11.

Shegumo was unstoppable on Sunday. He led from the halfway point alone and won confidently. After crossing the finish line, he looked like he had run 10 km at the most. Nevertheless, he admitted that he felt tired. - I was a bit tired. The route was not so easy. I was running alone for most of the distance. Somewhere in the middle, I asked my colleagues if they would go with me, but they were already tired and I had to run alone' said Shegumo at the finish line, who three years ago struggled with a serious injury and took a long time to recover. The 38-year-old won the Warsaw Marathon after an eight-year break. In 2013, he clocked a time of 2:10.34, which is still his personal record. He was greeted at the finish line on Sunday by his children - seven-year-old Aron and nine-year-old Elroie.
