Rain-slicked streets and occasional showers greeted Chicago Marathon participants on Sunday morning, but the less than ideal conditions didn't seem to hamper the elite runners blazing through the flat 26.2-mile course. British runner Mo Farah won the men's division with a time of 2:05:11, while Kenya’s Brigid Kosgei claimed the top spot in the women's division with a time of 2:18:35.
Elsewhere on the course, the majority of participants spent more than two hours making their way through Chicago on foot. We sent photographers to Pilsen (just past mile 19) and Chinatown (near mile 22) to capture the thousands of runners, including comedian Kevin Hart, pounding the pavement on their way to the finish line in Grant Park. Take a look at the Chinese dragons, mariachi bands and cheering crowds that greeted the runners with our gallery of photos from the 2018 Chicago Marathon.
