Dublin Marathon

Pics: The agony and the ecstasy of the Dublin City Marathon

Anyone for muscle cramp?

COMPETITORS ARE RUNNING, walking and crawling over the finishing line at the Dublin City Marathon this afternoon with male and female race winners already determined.

Over 14,300 people are taking part in today’s event with Geoffrey Ndungu of Kenya claiming first place in just over 2 hours and 11 minutes. Compatriot Magdalene Mukunzi, took the women’s race in a time of 2 hours and 30 minutes.

Luke Jones of Wales took the wheelchair section, coming in after just 2 hours and 3 minutes but for thousands of others there was still over halfway to go at that point.

Here are some pictures from the day so far, courtesy of Stephen Kilkenny:
