50th New York City Marathon Winners Visit Empire State Building

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- The four champions of the 50th New York City Marathon visited the Empire State Building on Monday.

Albert Korir and Peres Jepchirchir of Kenya won the men's and women's races, respectively.

Marcel Hug of Switzerland won the men's wheelchair race for the fourth time. Madison de Rozario of Australia won her first women's wheelchair title.

De Rozario said Monday her victory was finally starting to sink in.

"Really, really good. I think yesterday was a bit of a blur. I think it was a bit surreal, but, yeah, definitely started to kick in this morning," she said.

A limited field of 33,000 runners participated in the event after it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic last year.
