    The best Marathon I’ve ever ran.
    Everything you would expect a marathon to be. The race was properly planned and it made alot of difference for the runners. The marshalls, the medical personnel, the water stations, the celebration at the end of the race took the icing on the cake. Awesome Experience.

    The race course was very challenging with series of rolling hills. But in the end I finish the race.
    Having ran more than 10 marathons this is still my favourite so far with all hope that 2019 edition will better this.talk about the water stations. Security to the medal all superb.

    Aid stations were sufficient at every 2.5k distance and the medal was historic with a Yoruba icon. The race course was daunting yet enjoyable(killer rolling hills).
    In subsequent races, the start point should be well lit.
    I have gotten friends inspired to take part in the next edition with me.

    A race organized by runners for runners. The trip with Dayoo’s team was very impressive. It is much more than a marathon, because the framework is a cultural program to the roots of the Yoruba. I am very proud that this marathon will again be part of the African Marathon Challenge in 2019: http://www.marathon.africa
