Sinn Féin MLA Martin McGuinness has congratulated everyone who took part in today's Walled City Marathon.

The Foyle MLA said;

"I want to congratulate everyone who took part in today's Walled City Marathon, particularly Eric Koech was was the first to cross the finish line.

"It is a fantastic achievement and all those who took part should be proud of themselves.

"Many of the runners took part to raise money for charities or in memory of a loved one who has sadly died and I pay tribute to their fundraising efforts.

"It also attracts many visitors to our city and showcases how we can stage major events and full credit must go to the organisers for that.

"The people of the city have taken the marathon to their hearts and come out in their thousands to support it, helping to make it a marvellous occasion for everyone."
