First Week of January
Half marathon (10K Run)
4 years in a row, Opobo Marathon became an experience to look out for runners and marathon enthusiasts in the South-south of Nigeria.
“The marathon is a well thought out event aimed at showcasing Opobo to the world as it will attract many people. It will also give visibility to the kingdom and identity to the people. “It will help to arouse the consciousness of our people in exercising, as everybody needs to exercise. Marathon will test your strength and spirit of sportsmanship.”
Chairman of Opobo/Nkoro Local Government Area
“We are committed to anything that will bring peace, unity and development to the LGA. The marathon gives us the opportunity to unite our people, create happiness while also advocating for healthy living.”
“I thank the organisers of the marathon for keeping to their words in redeeming the prize to them. I came all the way from Osun to Opobo to participate in the run”
