"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." Ends/Críoch
