Trainers are being set out and final training has been completed for race day Sunday in Belfast.

The Moy Park Belfast City Marathon marks its 42nd anniversary on Sunday, May 5 - taking off from Stormont and finishing at Ormeau Park.

A number of road closures will be in place across the city to facilitate the race so if you're planning on heading out to watch the race or planning a trip anywhere along the route, this is something you need to be aware of.

In line with road closure legislation, a road closure order has been applied for with Belfast City Council for the Moy Park Belfast City Marathon and so motorists should expect some disruption.

Motorists are asked to follow diversion signs and take direction from stewards on the route.

Roads will start to close wholly or partially from around 6am until 4:30pm approximately.

Although once participants have passed points on the route, reopening of the roads will be managed as quickly as possible.
