Gebremaryam led past 5km in 15:14 and 10km in 30:52 and though the second 10km took a much slower 32:06, she held on for a 66:28 victory.

Emily Sisson ran strongly over the second half and finished 28 seconds back in setting a US record 66:52 and third went to a superb run for Jess Warner-Judd and her 67:19 moved her to fourth all-time among British athletes behind Paula Radcliffe (65:40), Eilish McColgan (66:26) and Liz McColgan (67:11).

Warner-Judd is of course a sub-two 800m performer.
