Maiden Koko Marathon Race, holds February 19


The first ever Koko Marathon Race, will hold Saturday February 19 in the historical town of Koko, headquarters of Warri North Local Government Area in Delta State, Fresh Angle International can report.

 

The sports-meet, which is part of activities to rebrand Warri Kingdom, following the successful coronation of Ogiame Atuwatse III, The 21st Olu of Warri and subsequent commencement of new events in the kingdom, is being put together by Iwere Sports Centre.

                                                           

According to a statement by the organizers, Koko Marathon Race: “Would be the biggest and probably loudest event of its kind in Koko Town in ages, with a fantastically vibrant atmosphere guaranteed for all, who will turn up either as runners, volunteers or spectators.

 

“The Koko Marathon race is a 10 kilometre race, which would start from the Koko Junction and finish at Koko Town Centre”.

 

The Koko Marathon race, tagged: “Running for Peace”, promises to bring together all lovers of sports in Warri Kingdom and would feature long distance runners, within and outside Warri kingdom.

 

The organizers, have encouraged all Itsekiri communities, to register at least one runner, to participate in the maiden athletic showpiece.

 

“We are a sports development platform, with a vision to revive sports in Warri Kingdom. We successfully hosted a table tennis championship last year at Otonloye Hall, Ugbori in Warri, which was supported by Esimaje Foundation and Warri Progressive Society (Otonloye).

 

“The Table Tennis Championship, helped discover new talents in Table Tennis, with some now inducted into Shell and Warri Table Tennis Clubs.

 

“We know that promoting Itsekiri through sports, is not an easy task, but it is achievable and we are ready to make it a vision worth fighting for. Warri kingdom will surely be great again through sports.

 

“For registration, sponsorship, branding and advert placement for the Koko Marathon Race, please call the numbers in the flyer”, Iwere Sports Centre, stated.
