The 4th Access Bank Lagos City Marathon is rated poor by some participate, saying that the organiser of the 42km annual event performed below average this year.
Some of them said that they were disappointed with the way things were handled after finishing their race.
Doyin James, a second time participants, who works for Coca-Cola, said that the way runners were treated was not commendable.
“I will not participate in the race again, to me, everything was a fraud. Why were they hoarding the medals after the race. They should have given us our medal as we were finishing.
After the race, I could not get water to drink, some athletes were even treated like nobody just because they came to run,” he said.
Abayomi Adelani, who ran the 10km race said he was disappointed but it would not deter him from participating in the next edition.
