Intending athletes for the eighth edition of the Okpekpe International 10km road can now pick up registration forms at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos State and Samuel Ogbemudia stadium in Benin, Edo state.
Pamodzi Sports Marketing, organiser of the first road race in West Africa to get a World Athletics label rating, said the forms can be picked up at the Marathon Office at the Teslim Balogun Stadium as well as the LOC office of the Samuel Ogbemudia stadium.
“Registration for the Okpekpe race is not limited to online platforms and we are delighted to announce the two places where forms can be picked up physically and returned,” race director Zack Amodu said.
“Registration for the race commenced last month on our various online platforms and it is opened to all categories of runners.
“The race is not only for professional athletes who want to run for the prize moneys on offer or to improve on their times for ranking purposes. It is also opened to people who want to run for fun or for charity,” he added even as he revealed how intending runners can be registered.
“For quick and easy registration, intending runners for all categories can download the tracking application launched for the race in 2017 or visit the website www.okpekperoadrace.com to register.
“We are delighted to announce that intending runners at the eighth edition of the race can also use our tracking application to register for the race,” said Amodu.
