We are not all athletes and let’s face it, even athletes can get cold feet when they hear about a 42km race. But, here’s the thing, there’s a race for everyone in the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon, so you don’t necessarily have to join the longest one. Here are reasons why you should participate in this year’s event:
It has been proven that a good run is good for your heart.
Participating in the marathon will help make your heart stronger, improve circulation, and strengthen your muscles. A good run also helps relieve stress (everyone could use that with the day to day work tasks and all.) It’s a good time to fulfill those fitness goals.
Everyone could use $50,000, N3,000,000 or N500,000 or a beautiful GAC Salon car and everyone stands a chance to win.
There will be musical performances from some of our best acts. The marathon has had some of the music industry’s best acts. In the previous years, artistes like , Seyi Shay, Tekno and Tiwa Savage. This year D’banj and Teniola have been confirmed to make everyone have a good time. You’ll meet people from across the world, get a chance a chance to network with important delegates from top industries and some of your favourite celebrities. Kate Henshaw, Enyinna, Gbenro Ajibade, Uzo Simpka are known to be attenders of the marathon.
Starting and completing a 10 or 42km race is certainly something worth boasting about. To be fair, not everyone can win the $50,000 or N3,000,000, but the marathon awards a medal to everyone as long as you finish the race, doesn’t matter your position, and that’s something worth showing your kids, friends or spouse. Everyone is a winner.
Don’t forget it holds on the 2nd February, 2019.
