La Rochelle Marathon: all results, victory for Tesfa Workneh
7000 bibs were at the start. Ethiopian Tesfa Workneh flew over the 27th edition of the Rochelese event, in 2h11 min and 07s

Bib number 2, the Ethiopian Tesfa Workneh became this Sunday the title holder of the event, with a victory in 2 h 11 min and 07 sec, just over two minutes from his personal record set in Marrakech , in 2015. It was his first victory, before that won in Dongguan, China, in 2016. For this third success of his career, he first escaped on the 35th kilometer with two compatriots, Ameta Belachew and Assefa Tadesse, before releasing them one kilometer later.

No record
As for men, the record did not fall in the women's event, where Kenyan Susan Jeptooo, based in Lyon since 2009, won in 2 hours 30 minutes and 57 seconds. Again, in front of two more of his compatriots. But it was only at the 38th kilometer that she could not get Sofia Chesire before finishing alone.
