Access Bank Lagos City Marathon: Organizers plan big for journalists as Accreditation begins

The accreditation process for media practitioners interested in covering the 2019 Access Bank Lagos City Marathon has officially commenced, even as the organizers disclosed that they are planning to train the media men ahead of the event.
The Head of Communications and Media for the marathon, Olukayode Thomas, said on Monday that the process of accreditation which will last for two months would be done strictly online as journalists are required to visit lagoscitymarathon.com to complete the simple process.
“The portal for the media accreditation is already up and running, we enjoin those that are interested to visit the site and register promptly,” he said.
While stating that it is very important for all journalists that want to be part of 2019 Access Bank Lagos City Marathon to get accredited, Thomas said there are limited spaces for this edition.
“For better management and effectiveness, we have limited spaces this year, that is why we are calling for early registration, the process will also be stricter this term as only professional media practitioners are welcomed to apply” Thomas declared.
The Head of Communication and Media for the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon revealed that training and seminars are already lined up for January 2019 to help journalists that would be coming from different parts of the world improve on their reportage of marathon races.
“We are already speaking to some resource persons both in the IAAF and CAA to come over to help improve the knowledge of our journalists, they have been very supportive over the years and they deserve to be encouraged with training exercises like these” Thomas posited.
The process of accreditation would end on Monday, January 7, 2019, and organizers have warned that there will be no last-minute registrations or extension of dates,
The 2019 Access Bank Lagos City Marathon is billed to take place on February 2, 2018.
