Ogbomosho marathon gets date
The maiden Ogbomosho 10km road race will now hold on Saturday November 28,2020, according to organisers of the race.
The first road race to be held in the ancient city was originally scheduled to hold last May but had to be shifted due to the nationwide lockdown occasioned by the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
“Now that the Federal government has given the go ahead for non-contact sports to go ahead,we have rescheduled the first Ogbomosho road race for November 28,2020,” said Prince Oyebamiji Aderemi,chairman of the organising committee who revealed the race has the backing of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria, AFN.
“We have written to the AFN communicating the new date and have been assured of the necessary technical support by the governing body for athletics in Nigeria,” he explained.
Oyebamiji is delighted with the response his committee is getting from people in and around Ogbomosho who are happy the city is hosting a major road race event in Nigeria.
