The much-talked about maiden edition of the JAC Motors sponsored Abeokuta 10Km Race has been rescheduled.
The race, organised by Nilayo Sports Management Limited is now scheduled to hold in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Saturday November 2, 2019.
According to a press release by the media office of the organisers, the shift in date of the event is to allow all and sundry observe their Sunday devotions without disruption of any sort.
The organisers, however deeply regret any inconvenience the change in date might cause, especially the sponsors and partners of the maiden edition of the Abeokuta marathon, and particularly, the over three thousand registered potential competing racers of the marathon.
The JAC Motors sponsored Abeokuta 10Km marathon, is also supported by the Ogun State government, Rite Foods, Bet9ja, QMB Builders Mart, Landwey Investment Limited, IBD International Hotels is the vision of Nilayo Sports Management Limited.
On a personal note, our heart aches as we announce the sudden passing of our media officer for the Abeokuta 10Km Marathon, Mr. Gbenga Davies.
He was an extraordinary journalist who inspired a lot of young people in his profession. We offer our deepest condolences to Mr. Davies’ family, colleagues and the media family in Ogun State.
