The 2010 New York City Marathon is over. The top three male winners were: Gebre Gebremariam of Ethiopia (2:08:14); Emmanuel Mutai of Kenya (2:09:18); and Moses Kigen Kipkosgei, also of Kenya (2:10:39). The top three finishers in the women's race were, in this order: Edna Kiplagat of Kenya (2:28:20); Shalane Flanagan of America (2:28:40); and Mary Keitany, also of Kenya (2:29:01).

In addition to those elite runners, many celebrities ran the marathon today, including Chilean miner Edison Pena, model Veronica Webb, football player Amani Toomer, Howard Stern Show co-host Robin Quivers, weatherman Al Roker, and more.

Here's how they all did.


Celebrity chef Bobby Flay's goal was to finish the race in under 4 hours. Did he do it? Almost. His time: 4:01:37. This was Flay's third marathon.

Actor Anthony Edwards finished in 4:04:45. The former ER star ran to raise money for Shoe4Africa.

Tennis pro Justin Gimelstob crossed the finish line in 4:09:58, winning a bet he made with Andy Roddick that he would finish in under 4:45. It looks like Roddick will be donating $10K to Justin Gimelstob's Children's Fund.

Amani Toomer finished in 4:13. Pretty impressive, since the New York Giants wide receiver was the very last runner to start the race. For every person he passed in the race, Timex will donate $1 to the New York Road Runners youth fitness program. We won't know the actual amount until the marathon is officially over.

Survivor winner and cancer survivor Ethan Zohn finished in 4:16:20, with girlfriend Jenna Morasca cheering him on throughout the race.

Model and actress Veronica Webb finished the race in a very respectable 4:59:12. See, models really do have to exercise to stay fit.

Jared "Subway Diet" Fogle said he just hoped he could finish the marathon, and he did -- in 5:13. He was running for the Jared Foundation, an organization he started to help fight childhood obesity.

Chilean miner Edison Pena finished the marathon in 5:40:51. He needed ice packs for his knees along the way, but he made it. No surprise for a guy who survived 69 days trapped underground.

Today Show anchor Meredith Vieira ran her first marathon in just under 6 hours (5:59). She expected her husband to greet her at the finish line.

Robin Quivers, Howard Stern Show co-host, finished in a time of 6:09:00. I'm sure Stern show listeners will be hearing all about it. Quivers ran to benefit the 15 Foundation.

Today Show's Al Roker will likely take some ribbing from his co-worker Vieira tomorrow morning. He ran the race in 7:09. That's what I call a good day's work.

Congratulations to all the runners!
