JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Thousands began the race at 7:30 a.m., running the marathon, or a half-marathon, or part of a relay team.

Thousands also lined the route cheering on the participants. Many of those participants were breast  cancer survivors or running in honor of a cancer survivor or in memory of a loved one lost to breast cancer.

According to results posted by the Times-Union, Kennedy Kemei of Kenya won the marathon in an unofficial time of 2 hours, 20 minutes. He finished 2 minutes, 25 seconds ahead of fellow Chapel Hill, N.C., resident Kipyegon Kirui.
