Okpekpe Road Race

May 19, (THEWILL) – MTN Nigeria, the country’s largest telecommunications company, has joined the expanding list of blue-chip firms that have endorsed the historic World Athletics Elite Label Okpekpe International 10km Road Race.

MTN reaffirmed its support for the eighth edition of the event, which will take place on Saturday, May 28, 2022, in Okpekpe, near Auchi in Edo State, according to race director, Zack Amodu.

While revealing that MTN will be providing support in several ways, including financial and data support, Amodu said: “We are delighted to have MTN identify with the first World Athletics label road race in West Africa and I think it is only fitting that we have the largest mobile telecommunications operator in Nigeria supporting an event that has been designated through its label status as one of the leading road races in the world.”

The support of the telecoms giant was extended to the participants, officials, spectators, and Okpekpe residents, who will benefit from a special 30% discount on data bundles for Nigerians on their network at the event.

“This will be in addition to the branded t-shirts, umbrellas, wrist bands, pens, notepads and other giveaways, that will be distributed to spectators at the venue. This is a win-win situation for everybody that will be in Okpekpe on race day, especially those on the MTN network. Okpekpe is the first road running event in West Africa to be granted a World Athletics label status”, Amodu concluded.
