Okpekpe 10km Road Race

The Nigerian Breweries Plc has once again thrown its weight behind the Okpekpe International 10km Road Race.

Last year, the company joined the cast of corporate organisations, who supported the race as it became the first ever and only IAAF silver label road running event to hold in Nigeria nay West Africa.

“This year, Nigerian Breweries Plc has elected to continue to partner with us as a friend of the race,” said Zack Amodu, the race’s director of organisation.

Amodu confirmed Nigerian Breweries Plc would support the race with cash and some of their products.

“Nigerian Breweries is a major player in sports sponsorship and promotion in Nigeria. We are indeed thrilled that such a socially responsible corporate organization has thrown its weight behind us for the second year running. This is a testimony to the growing popularity of the Okpekpe race.

“In 2015 Okpekpe 10km road race became the first road race in Nigeria nay West Africa to be granted an IAAF label status, which means the race is regarded as one of the world’s leading road running events.

“A label certifies the global sporting significance of the race, the organisational quality and the compliance with relevant IAAF competition rules,” Amodu explained.

The seventh Okpekpe International 10km Road Race will hold on May 25, 2019.
