Biwott crossed the line finish line after 2:10:34 beating world cross country champion Geoffery Kamworor (KEN) and Boston marathon champion Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia. 

Former Boston Marathon champion the 40-year-old Meb Keflezighi was the top American finishing in 7th place in 2:13:32. 

"It was fantastic. "The pace was slow (in the first half of the race) but I knew that last 15 kilometres I pushed hard." said the 29-year-old Biwott who split massive 28.35min for the last 10km.

Defending NY marathon champion Wilson Kipsang finished in fourth in 2:12.45.

Last year's champion Mary Keitany pushed away from the lead pack at 29km marker to win her second NY marathon title with a time of  2:24:25.

Keitany beat London Marathon champion Tigist Tufa of Ethiopia becoming the first back-to-back New York champion since Paula Radcliffe won in 2007 and 2008.

Ethiopia's Aselefech Mergia took second place clocking 2:25:32 with teammate Tufa finishing in third.

"When I took my lead, I said, let me just go," said the 33-year-old Keitany. "If someone is enough strong they can come." She added. 

Ethiopia's Aselefech Mergia took second in 2:25:32 with teammate  Tufa crossing the line third in 2:25:50.

The top American was Laura Thweatt, who in her marathon debut finished seventh with a time of 2:28.23.
