24 hours later, the buzz continues for Access Bank Lagos City Marathon!


What a race! What a triumph! The Access Bank Lagos City Marathon brought together some of the best African runners and pushed athletes to the very edge of endurance.

At the end of the day though, there were no losers, only winners. From Abraham Kiptum to Illiya Pam Mwanta; From Tanui Rodah to Fadekemi Olude; all the way to the amateur marathon runners who were proud to get to the finish line, we are proud of all of them!


The organisers of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon must be commended on the event. The alternative routes worked a dream; The usual Lagos traffic borne of weddings and other owambes made use of the alternative routes with little or no issues. The pace setters employed to eliminate cheating also worked well; and the cleanup began immediately, removing the debris of such a grand event.

And the entertainment! From Seyi Shay to Davido and, of course, Olamide, the artistes were on hand to wow and impress. And that they did.

A fantastic day all in all!
