Okpekpe race organizers unveil unique results, photos portal for athletes

Organisers of the ninth Gold Label Okpekpe international 10km road race held last Saturday in Okpekpe, Etsako East Local Government Area of Edo State say
athletes who participated in the race can now check their result and download their photos via its results portal,

Dare Esan, the Media and Activation director of the race disclosed that athletes do not only need their certificate of participation but can also download
their photos to show their friends, families and children proof that they participated in the first Gold label 10km road race in Nigeria.

‘All a runner at the race needs to do is go to our results portal,, click on his/her name. This will bring out his/her
result including what he/she ran at the half way mark. The result can also be shared to family and friends.

‘To get his or photos, the athlete should click on photos directly under his name,’ said Esan.

The Media and Activation director says Okpekpe race has always been known for coming up with innovations to add value to the event, especially the athletes
who are one of the most important components of the race.

‘Remember Okpekpe race is the first road running event in Nigeria to be classified as world class when it was granted a label status (bronze) in 2015.

‘It is the first to have its race course measured by a World Athletics accredited course measurer and the first Gold Label 10km road race in Nigeria.’

Esan says the latest innovation was borne out of the desire to have runners at the race have a pleasant and unforgettable experience, one they can be proud
of and share with their friends and families.’

Kenya’s Daniel Simiu Ebenyo ran a new 28:28 course record to win the men’s title while Caroline Chepkoech Kipkirui of Kazakhstan also ran a new 32.38 course
record to win the women’s title.
