Lagos to host 50,000 international athletes

The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, says the state is preparing to host about 50,000 athletes from across the world for the second edition of Access Bank Lagos City Marathon billed to hold on February 11, 2017.

Ambode, at a press conference at Lagos House in Ikeja, said necessary logistics had been put in place to make the event successful, as well as promote the tourism potential of the state.

The governor said, “About 33,753 runners, including 65 elite marathoners from different parts of the world and over 100 local elite runners participated in the 2016 edition in February.

“We are working to ensure that the 2017 edition is a major improvement compared to the maiden edition.”

Ambode said as a result of the success of the 2016 edition, several individuals and corporate organisations had expressed interest in partnering the organisers towards ensuring a successful tourney.

The governor said the 2017 edition would feature the top 10 men and women marathoners in the world, who would also be joined by many gold label, silver label and bronze label marathoners from different parts of the world.

“The Lagos City Marathon is presently ranked 68th in the world, but our goal is to make it the top 10 in the world and that is what we are working on,” Ambode said.

The Managing Director of Access Bank, Mr. Herbert Wigwe, expressed optimism that the 2017 edition of the race would be bigger.

He noted that the success of the first edition did not only showcase Lagos to be an avenue for sports development, but also for the growth of tourism.
