Hi, what are you looking for?


Running is doing something great. – Cindy Nkomo


Few things capture the mind of Cindy Nkomo than long distance races, The South African, who loves running have participated in marathons outside Africa, The Tokyo, Berlin, Chicago and Paris Marathon, with the hope of attending the London Marathon later this year, but the excitement that engulfed Cindy a day before the fourth edition of the Lagos City Marathon seems that of someone looking forward to her Marathon debut.

Cindy, a proud member of one of the biggest social running club in South Africa, the fat cat running club, started running with the purpose of losing weight before it became a way of life and a recreation activity.

The forty years old was part of the forty thousand international runners, like few others runners, her aim is not the podium but the feelings of participation and healthy living.

With Bib number forty five, Cindy finished the 42KM race in four hours, forty minutes at a pace of 6:35km.

‘’ The route is great and the weather is forgiving. The water stations were all manned, vibey, and had enough water. I had the best experience overall and I look forward to running it again next year.

As a young race there is still room for improvement but I have no doubt that with Access Bank continued support and all the other sponsors; those minor issues will be sorted ‘’.

If the 2020 Edition of the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon witnessed more runners from South Africa, then the reasons won’t be far fetch.
