Farah was two minutes and four seconds behind victor Eliud Kipchoge with the four-time Olympic champion runing in his first marathon since retiring from the track.
Sir Mo Farah broke the British marathon record with an unofficial time of two hours, six minutes and 21 seconds to finish third in the 2018 London Marathon.
Two Kenyans Eliud Kopchoge and Vivian Cheruiyot made the nation proud on Sunday after taking top positions in the men and women London marathon respectively.
"The end was tougher than past year", said Weir, whose seventh win in 2017 had seen him surpass the previous record tally of six he shared with Tanni Grey-Thompson.
Eliud Kipchoge and Vivian Cheruiyot are the winners of the 2018 edition of the London Marathon. I went with it and hung on as much as I could. Ethiopia's Tadelech Bekele cut off the possibility of a Kenyan 1-2-3 coming in third in a time of 2:21:30 while Gladys Cherono finished fourth in 2:24:10. "There was certainly a lesson in the drinks station around halfway: "(It) was quite a confusion", he said.
Farah, the multiple Olympic and world gold medallist who turned his back on the track a year ago to concentrate on road racing, briefly threatened a shock victory in his first serious attempt around the streets of the capital.
By 19:00 this evening, 40,255 had conquered the hottest Race Day on record to cross the Finish Line in The Mall and pick up their hard-earned medals and souvenir finishers' T-shirts, beating last year's record total by 768 runners.
"They were going for world record pace", Farah said.
Kipchoge, as always appeared calm and assured and as the race reached the Embankment with two miles to go the man regarded as the best marathoner of all-time turned the screw on Kitata and opened up a significant gap on the Ethiopian.
"It's so different to being on the track, it's different pain and different training but I've enjoyed it".
"I gave 110% like I always do".
The men's race went out at a blistering pace, and Farah stayed with the group until a weird incident when he missed his drinks bottle around the 10-mile (16-kilometer) mark, which delayed him after a heated exchange with a steward.
"The drinks stations were confusing", he said. "I was telling the people 'just tell me which one is his drink or my drink, just point to my drink'". I got a personal best.
"I'm satisfied with the result", added Farah. "So I raced like that".
"My aim is to run another marathon in the autumn and then see what happens in the summer of 2019 in Doha".
