This year’s edition of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon is set to witness over 60,000 runners on the Lagos roads to compete for honours in the Elite Label race, as the status of the Lagos City Marathon rises.
Speaking on the annual event, the General Manager Nilayo Sports Management Company, Yusuf Ali, said; “The 2023 Lagos City Marathon will see over 60,000 first class runners compete for honours in the race scheduled for February 4, 2023.”
“As the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon organises its’ first ever World Atletics Elite Label Marathon in Lagos in this part of the world, we will at the sametime be gunning for the attainment of a Platinuum Label race status for the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon.”
- “With this, this year’s 10km race will be opened to as many Elite runners from across Africa and the world as possible, to raise the race’s status towards attaining the Elite Label status in the 10km, in next few years.”
- “Our target is to have two Elite Label races in a single city running side by side both in the full and 10km races. While also working very hard to uplift the full Marathon that is already an Elite Label race to a Platinum Label race.”
“The Lagos City Marathon is already in auto drive. The Nilayo Sports Management Limited is ready for the large number of runners associated with the Elite Label races all over the world. Most Gold Label races in the world hosts between 50,000 to 80,000 runners.”
