Access Bank Lagos Marathon 2022: Registration Commences Today
Registration starts today for the 7th edition of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon, an event that features athletes from all walks of life and from around the globe. The sporting event is scheduled to hold on February 12th, 2022. It will be organised in compliance with all government laid-down Covid-19 precautionary measures.
Registration for the 42km race and bib collection starts from February 1st – 10th at the Teslim Balogun Stadium from 9 am – 6 pm daily.
The theme for the 2022 race is drawn from the rationale that no matter what life may have brought as a result of the Covid situation, stopping is never an option. ‘We must keep moving, forging ahead and surviving because there are better days ahead’ the organizers stressed.
The 2022 edition of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon is set to feature the return of the 10km physical race, alongside the 10km virtual race and the 42km physical race.
Unlike the 2021 edition of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon which featured 300 athletes in the 42km race, with other members of the public joining the virtual 10km race on the FiNerge app, the 2022 edition of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon is open to all members of the public.
The organizers of the event have put in place stringent COVID-19 measures to safeguard the health of all participants, and all athletes and workers are to adhere strictly to the laid down rules. Crowd control measures have also been implemented to reduce overcrowding and its effects.
The 10km physical race will commence at Grace Gardens Event Place, Bisola Durosinmi Etti, Lekki Phase 1 by 10 am and end at Eko Atlantic, while the 42km race will begin at National Stadium, Surulere by 6:30 am and also end at Eko Atlantic.
The 10KM virtual race will be done using the FiNerge app.
Prominent Nigerian artists like Teni, Zlatan, Wande coal and others are set to grace the event and perform live after the race at Eko Atlantic.
