Mwangui, who had completed the half-marathon after 1:04.25 hours, crossed the finish line at Queimodromo alone, leaving behind Ethiopians Abraraw Misganaw Tegegne (2:10.29), second, and Haymanot Alew (2:11.10), third, in a men's sector in which José Sousa, from Praia de Mira, was the best Portuguese, finishing in sixth (2:18.35).

Kenya's Alice Jepkemboi Kimutai unquestionably dominated the female side, finishing in 2:29.58 hours, being accompanied on the podium by Portugal's Vanessa Carvalho, from Sporting de Braga (2:35.24), and also Kenyan Lydia Njeri Mathathi (2:36.38).

The 42.195-kilometre route was once again extended along the Atlantic front of the cities of Porto and Matosinhos, since, as in the previous edition, the works on the lower deck of the D. Luís I Bridge continue to make it impossible to pass through Vila Nova de Gaia.
