In the men’s event, Wong Kai-lok came home ahead of Japan’s Masashi Shirotake by the narrowest of margins, with just four seconds separating the pair.
The women’s race was more clear-cut, with Hongkonger Christy Yiu Kit-ching leading for most of the race and crossing the finishing line in Victoria Park well ahead of the field.
There were also Hong Kong winners in the half-marathon events, with Vut Tsz-ying in the women’s section and Chan Ka-ho in the men’s race claiming victory.
And local runners also dominated the 10km. Lo Ching-chiu won the women’s race while Wong Tsz-to was the fastest man home.
About 15,700 people took part in the marathon and its associated half-marathon and 10km races. Roads across Hong Kong were to remain closed for much of Sunday morning.
