Sally Kipyego of Kenya set an event record in her debut at the New York City Half Marathon Sunday, and fellow Kenyan Geoffrey Mutai won easily after Olympic champion Mo Farah tripped early in the race.

Over 20,000 runners participated in the race, which runs from Central Park through Times Square and down the West Side Highway.

Kipyego finished the race in 1:08:31 and Mutai, the two-time defending New York City Marathon champion won his third straight race in the city with a time of 1:00:50.

Josh George (50:37) of the United States and Diane Roy (59:25) of Canada were the inaugural wheelchair champions.
