Lagos Half Marathon - The official website

They have finally published a website for the Lagos Half marathon. Here is the link:

Here are a couple of interesting excerpts from the website:

Running Rule #1
All teams must complete the courses as instructed and marked. No motorized forms of transport are allowed unless otherwise required (e.g. during an emergency).

Comment: I have heard that many people try to cheat by taking an okada (motorcycle) for part of the run!

For your safety, it is advised that you do not participate in the event if you have had a fever or cold in the past week, or have a hangover, as these can contribute towards heat exhaustion, dehydration, or life threatening heatstroke.

Comment: Interesting that they have to mention hangovers here. Duh!!!

Please note: Toilet facilities at the Half Marathon Start will provided. Urinals for men will be available at the Half Marathon Start to assist with waiting times. The organisers ask that all men utilise these urinals where at all possible.

Comment: Are there no women's restrooms??? Uh Oh!!
