Event organisers described the level of interest in the event as "unprecedented" - even the city's Lord Mayor Máirtín Ó Muilleoir was among the participants.
Belfast man Stephen Scullion, 24, was the first man over the line with a time of 1:06:52.
He has previously won the Omagh Half Marathon, the Irish 10K title in Dublin, the Titanic Quarter 10K, the Laganside 10K and a bronze medal in the Edinburgh 10K.
Ed McGinley came second and Brendan Teer third.
Meanwhile, Aileen Reid from Londonderry came first in the women's race.
The course, described as "flat and fast", went through the city centre before reaching Stranmillis College nine miles in.
The final stretches of the event covered the Lagan Valley Towpath, finishing at the refurbished Mary Peters Track.
Cancer Focus Northern Ireland is the official nominated charity for the event.
