Organizers set Date for Warri/Effurun Peace marathon


The 2018 Warri/Effurun Peace Marathon is billed for March 3rd in the Delta State commercial hub of Warri.

According to Mrs Joyce Bozimo, who is the chief executive officer for the event entering its third edition, disclosed that other runners from East Africans have shown interest in this year's edition. 

Mrs Joyce Bozimo also said 
“We did get notice of interest by some East African runners. But for now, we cannot entertain foreign athletes. The race is only for athletes resident in Nigeria,” said Mrs. 
Joyce Bozimo, who is the chief executive officer for the event entering its third edition.

She stated that the race has been upgraded to a 21km race and the course already mapped out. A kiddies’ 10km race has also been introduced.


We are also looking for new innovations to make the event more appealing and exciting to the spectators and the participating athletes.

“Of course we haven’t forgotten why we are having the race. It is to promote peaceful coexistence in the area.

“Warri and environs were a very peaceful and joyful destinations in the past. With the Warri/Effurun Peace Marathon, we are sending a message to the youths, that there is more to life than violence.”
