The Access Bank Lagos City marathon is here again… in fact, it is only 5 days away. Have you been gearing up? Or are you still thinking about it?
The Lagos marathon is now certified as a Bronze Medal marathon, with its routes officially measured, and with a goal to achieve Gold label within the next two editions.
The #AccessBankLagosCityMarathon is currently number 88 out of over 500 certified marathons in the world.
If you plan on engaging in the marathon, be warned that you don’t just make this decision and jump into the race on Saturday. You have to prepare for the event by warming up and exercising prior to the event.
Wondering how? Akin Akinkugbe has registered to be in the marathon and takes us through his preparation journey.
