Over 15,000 runners have taken part in the Belfast City Marathon.
It was a particularly good day for Northern Ireland, as Kilkeel runner Laura Graham won the women's race. Laura was first across the line in 2 hours 41 minutes. Meanwhile the men's race was won by Kenyan Bernard Rotich.
The race began at Belfast City hall, and 26.2 miles later, it finished at Ormeau Park.
However, plenty were there for reasons other than competitive running. Large numbers of people turned out in fancy dress, while also raising money for charity.
