National Operator and sports supporting company, Globacom, is providing opportunities for Nigerians wishing to participate in the upcoming Glo-Lagos International Half Marathon to register at the ongoing Lagos International Trade Fair.
The company disclosed that interested runners can walk into the Glo pavilion at the Fair to pick up registration forms which can be filled and submitted at the same place.
This step, the company explained, was designed to enable more Nigerians have the opportunity to participate in the historic race, which prize money is unprecedented in the history of marathon in Nigeria.
It further added that interested runners wishing to register for the Marathon at the Fair would be free to also ask questions about their participation.
Globacom took up the sponsorship of the Marathon months ago and has repackaged it to give better prize money to winners and indeed more Nigerians.
Apart from the main race which is attracting top runners from various countries, Globacom has also added the Corporate and Family Fun Run to enable more Nigerians run for fun, prizes, to stay healthy and rule their world.
Prior to this, Globacom had begun a campaign on the theme, “Everybody Runs Lagos” to sensitise the people across the country that the marathon was for everyone irrespective of class, race, creed or status.
The Glo-Lagos International Half Marathon will be held in Lagos on December 8, 2007. The event, which is being organised by the telecommunications giant in conjunction with the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) is already attracting foreign marathon runners and generating excitement among the local colleagues.
