The men's and women's marathons were held on Day 3 of the 2017 London World Championships. Held on a four loop course near the famous London Tower Bridge, the marathoners had fans the entire way.
Amy Cragg took the bronze medal in the marathon, with a gutty finish that required a kick over the last 385 meters. In gaining that medal, something she had discussed with her coach, Jerry Schumacher, who inspired her to focus on the medal and how she could do that, she completed a line with the late Marianne Dickerson, who took the lone other women's marathon medal by an American way back in 1983.
