The fourth edition of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon has been fixed for Saturday, February 2, 2019.
In a statement signed by Head Communications and Media, Olukayode Thomas, the General Manager for the Lagos Marathon, Yussuf Alli explained that the new date was chosen to align with the new international calendar for global races.
Alli also stated that the February 2 date was also geared at making sure that the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon was able to command the presence of more elite runners to add glamour to the Lagos race.
He said: “The 2019 Access Bank Lagos City Marathon will be taking place on February 2nd, this is very good for us as we are now on the same page with the international body for road races and marathons. More top stars across the world can plan themselves and be part of our race going forward”.
The Lagos Marathon boss also revealed that due to the broad nature of Lagos state, another form collection center has been opened in Lekki to cater for those in that axis.
Alli said runners from Epe, Lekki, Ajah and even Victoria Island axis can now pick up forms from Revolution Plus Property Development Company, Lekki Phase 1 Lagos.
Alli appealed to all intending runners that the Lagos Marathon is now in line with international standards; hence all entries and registrations must be completed on or before January 11, 2019.
He added that the collection of running kit bibs will end on January 22, 2019.
“We have made the registration process quite easier now, so we want everybody interested to do the needful now, these dates we have on our timeline will not be shifted for any reason,” Alli warned sternly.
The Access Bank Lagos City Marathon which is now a bronze label race attracted over 100,000 runners during its last edition.
