The Central Car Park of the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, promises to be a beehive of activity from Monday, January 27, 2020 as the Expo for the 2020 edition of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon begins.
Similarly, over the weekend in faraway Dubai, United Arab Emirates, the Project Consultant for the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon Bukola Olopade and Head of Business and Programme, ValueJet, Temitope Ajibola met during the 2020 Dubai Marathon.
At the end of their meeting, the two brands agreed to enter into a partnership.
In a statement released by Access Bank Lagos City Marathon Head of Communications and Media Olukayode Thomas, Ajibola said he is highly impressed by the phenomenal rise of Access Bank Lagos City Marathon to a global brand within five years and is looking forward to an enduring relationship between the two brands.
Thomas revealed that ValueJet and other sponsors and partners of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon will be at the Marathon Expo which begins on Monday.
Thomas urged runners who have registered for either the full marathon or the 10km fun run to pick up their running kits at the Expo.
He also urged those that have not registered for the 2020 race to do so during the Expo as officials of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon will gladly register interested runners.
“The 2020 Marathon Expo will be fun. Apart from intending runners picking up their kits, it will be an entertaining and fun place to be. One of the best DJs in Lagos State, DJ Kelvinator will be on the ground from 9.00 am till 6.00 pm to entertain visitors at the Expo. Our sponsors and partners have concluded to give out gifts and products to visitors and runners after they answer simple questions. Runners and visitors will equally have the opportunity to interact with our celebrity runners and elite runners from Nigeria and other parts of the world’’ said Thomas.
