Taipei - Julius Chepkwony Rotich beat his compatriot and defending champion Josphat Kamzee Jepkopol to win the men's title in the Taipei marathon Sunday.

Rotich crossed the line in two hours, 14 minutes and four seconds to take home a prize of Tw$1.2 million ($38,130).

Compatriot Hillary Yego came second on 2:17:00 while Jepkopol trailed on 2:20:03.

A field of Kenyan big names also dominated the women's race, with Alice Jemeli Timbilil, the 2010 Armsterdam marathon winner, clocking 2:34:55.

She was followed by Carolyne Chemutai Komen with 2:36:17 and Viola Chepleting Bor with 2:38:29.

More than 100,000 runners took part in the event, with about 4,200 competing in the full 42-kilometre (26.2-mile) marathon and others running shorter distances.
