Runners took off from City Hall at 9am on Monday morning - with the 26.2 mile route making its way across Belfast before finishing in Ormeau Park.

Winners

Freddy Sittuk from Kenya took victory in the Belfast Marathon 2014 - clocking a time of 2 hours 18 minutes and 30 seconds

The 32-year-old finished over three minutes in front of rival, and last year's sinner, Joel Kipsang.

Fellow Kenyan Hillary Kipsang came in third.

Joe McAlister was the first Northern Irish man to finish - with a time of 2 hours 33 minutes and 9 seconds.

Ethiopian Bayrush Shiferaw took the women's event in 2 hours 41 minutes and 20 seconds.

Patrick Monaghan took first place in the wheelchair race, with second place going to Paul Hannon.

Aside from those taking part in the team relay, wheelchair race and fun run, Joel Kipsang was back to defend his title on Monday – but fellow Kenyan Bernard Rotich had started as favourite. These elite athletes headed another very large field of some 2,900 entrants for the 33rd Deep RiverRock event.

Previous performances

Last time around, 27-year-old Kipsang broke away from his main rival Joseph Rotich in the final mile for a comfortable 30 seconds victory in 2hrs 19mins 28secs.

In 2013, both athletes had attempted to maintain a course record breaking pace of 2.13.41 which had been set the previous year by Ethiopia's Urga Negewo.

However, while the pace was maintained to half way the two runners were then forced to slow due to the usual strong wind on the exposed M2 foreshore and Duncrue Street areas.

Sittuk was isolated for most of the race in third spot and finally crossed the line in 2.24.39 ahead of local St Malachy's man Tom Frazer.

Following his victory in Belfast, Kipsang has been very busy with more marathons – in Germany last September when he was second, and Israel in January when he finished fourth in a fast time of 2.12.08.

But aside from the competitive racing, many of those descending on the city were doing it for themselves - or to help a good cause.

The Belfast Telegraph was there to film every single athlete - young and old - taking part in the event.
