All four runners were from Ethiopia in the eight-member leading group that crystallized at the thirtieth kilometer. Three kilometers later, Tsegay Gemechu, who until then had led most of the race, retired, and the remaining trio began to pull away from their rivals. Even this year's fastest winner of the Tokyo Marathon, Rosemary Wanjiru from Kenya, did not keep pace with them. Rose Chelim of Bahrain, the 2017 world champion, gave up halfway through the course.

On the last climb on the bridge, Shankule, who ran the third-fastest marathon of all time (2:14:58) in Valencia in December, stepped up. . She was eleven seconds ahead of Gebreslase at the finish line. Fatima Ezzahra Gardadi from Morocco finished third.

77 endurance women took the start. At the premiere at the world championship, Stewart was in the top ten and crossed the finish line less than ten minutes behind the winner. “I'm satisfied with the position. As for the position, I showed what I'm capable of. I definitely moved up against the fact that I came here as a 65th in the charts… I definitely overtook a lot of big names there,” Stewart told Czech journalists.

It soon became clear that he was not going to run fast. “The first half was so cool, even though we were going at such a slower pace. It was in the 15th hour I was looking at, so it didn't indicate fast times. I said goodbye to that pretty quickly. But it's the world championships, it's played here about the placement and I'm satisfied with that,” added the Czech endurance athlete.

She was happy about placing among the European women. “That's a surprise to me, I don't even know, so definitely a big plus,” she replied when she found out.
