“There was an attempt by about 50-60 demonstrators to try and make their way toward the running area,” he said. “(There were) no major incidents apart from that.”

Abraham Kabeto Ketla of Ethiopia won the marathon, finishing in 2 hours, 16 minutes and 29 seconds Friday, beating the record by three minutes.
