Access Bank Lagos marathon

The International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) has awarded the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon the IAAF Bronze Label.

The development sparked wild celebrations  at the Marathon Office at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos on Wednesday as  Project Consultant Bukola Olopade and General Manager Yussuf Alli praised IAAF.

Head of Communications and Media  for the race Olukayode Thomas   said  the Lagos marathon  had joined global elite races like New York, Boston, Chicago, Tokyo, Dubai, London, Roma, Paris and  Berlin.

Among the thousands of races worldwide, only 88 are labelled by IAAF, and the Lagos  marathon is one of the new additions.

Olopade said Lagos State  Governor Akinwunmi Ambode would  formally present the certificate to Lagosians and Nigerians soon.

Olopade commended Ambode for making the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon a reality and for his unflinching support.

He said, “We are a global brand today because of Governor Ambode’s vision and foresight, without him there won’t be anything called Access Bank Lagos City Marathon. This is his project and he is giving us all support we need. “
