The world record holder in women’s marathon, Paula Radcliffe has hinted that she will be more than willing to be part of the 2017 edition of the Lagos City Marathon.
Radcliffe gave this cheering news to members of the Local Organising Committee of the Lagos Marathon who are presently attending the Dubai Marathon to gain more ideas in organising the Lagos race billed for February 6.
The star British long distance runner who gladly endorsed the Lagos race said she would be looking forward to being part of the 2017 edition which is guaranteed to be bigger.
“I am happy to endorse the Lagos City International Marathon which is taking place this year; February 6th, I look forward to possibly working with you next year.” Said Radcliffe who at the Chicago Marathon in 2002 set a record of 2 hours 15 minutes and 25 seconds yet to be matched by any woman.
Even in its maiden edition, the Lagos City marathon is guaranteed a star-cast with almost 70 elite athletes across the world guaranteed to compete.
