On February 2, 2019, Lagos City hosted the 4th edition of the #LagosCityMarathon race

A race that started in front of Nigeria’s Lagos-based National Stadium in Surulere meandered through Nigeria’s longest bridge, the 3rd Mainland Bridge before ending 42 miles later at its elitist project site known as “Eko Atlantic” where a new city built for the rich and powerful on the shores of the Atlantic ocean in Lagos is defining the city’s landscape.

This year’s race which saw hundreds of thousands troop into the metro city to join the race and cheer the runners also saw (for the fisrt time) the Presidential Candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore join the race alongside members of his party.
