Organisers plan carnival at Okpekpe Road Race finish point
Organisers of the IAAF bronze-labelled Okpekpe International 10-KM Road Race have announced that there will be live bands at the race’s finish point to entertain participants on May 7, when the fourth edition of the race holds in Okpekpe near Auchi in Edo State.
Spokesman for the race, Dare Esan, said a carnival-like atmosphere will be created both at the start and at the finish with live bands and a selection of other activities at the finish area throughout the day.
“There will also be food and beverages for participants and spectators because the Okpekpe International 10-KM Road Race is much more than an athletics event.
As the only race on the continent holding the IAAF bronze label status, we believe the prestige attached to the annual road running festival will continue to have a positive impact on Okpekpe residents,’ said Esan, who also revealed other benefits the race will bring to the community in particular and Nigeria in general.
