Nigerian Breweries Plc supports Okpekpe international 10km road race.
“This year, Nigerian Breweries Plc has elected to continue to partner with us as a friend of the race.
“The largest and biggest brewing firm in Nigeria wants to continue to be a part of history.
As we strive to bring the first IAAF gold label race to Nigeria and West Africa as well as the second in the entire continent of Africa after the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon in South Africa.
Nigerian Brewery is a major player in sports sponsorship and promotion in Nigeria.
We are indeed thrilled that such a socially responsible corporate organization has thrown its weight behind us for the second year running.
This is a testimony to the growing popularity of the Okpekpe race”. Says Zack Amodu, the race’s director of the organization.
He further said their target is to get a gold label for the race next year and the new IAAF road race rules have made it compulsory that we use the template of the label we are aspiring for in the event preceding the label.
This means that this year’s race will have a gold label standard written all over it especially in terms of the quality of the elite field.”
The seventh edition of the Okpekpe international 10km road race will hold on Saturday, May 25, 2019, and it will be live on television across the globe via Supersport, its official broadcast partner.
