Global focus has now shifted to Okpekpe, in Edo State, Nigeria as the next host of a World Athletics gold label road race in the world after the Turkiye İş Bankası Istanbul Half Marathon held in Istanbul, Turkey at the end of last month.

The Okpekpe International 10km Road Race which holds on the 25th of this month is the 23rd of the 45 World Athletics gold label races listed to hold this year in the calendar of World Athletics and like in previous years, it will be the only label road race to hold on the day irrespective of the label category.

Pamodzi Sports Marketing International, organisers of the race says this year’s edition is a celebration of 10 years of organising a truly World class event that has made Nigeria one of the destinations of sorts for sports, especially road running events.
