Under almost ideal weather conditions, 40,000 runners took part in Sunday's race, the 40th annual for Chicago.

Galen Rupp became the first American male runner to win the Chicago Marathon on Sunday since Khalid Khannouchi in 2002.

As in 2016, the 37-year-old five-time victor beat all but Switzerland's Marcel Hug home, finishing with a time of 1 hour, 30 minutes and 24 seconds.

"But I just felt a little gap pulling away and at that point, it was like you've got to put the hammer down and drive to the finish".

Before Sunday, Khalid Khannouchi was the last American victor when he crossed the finish line first in 2002. Sunday marked his fourth career marathon.
