The New York Road Runners hosted the eighth annual New York City Half Marathon Sunday.

More than 20,000 runners aged 13 to 82 ran the 13.1-mile course.

They looped through Central Park before heading down through Times Square and into Lower Manhattan.

First to the finish line was Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya, completing the race in just 1 hour and 50 seconds.

Olympic gold medalist Mo Farrah from the United Kingdom took second place despite a fall early in the race.

In the women's competition, Sally Kipyego of Kenya set a new race record with a time of 1 hour, 8 minutes and 31 seconds.
