In a press statement by the company’s Group Product Manager, Drinks (Lucozade & Ribena), Ms. Aigbeme Momoh, the decision of the company to support the Marathon with one of its leading brands, Lucozade Sport, is in a bid to encourage a healthy lifestyle among its consumers in Nigeria as well as energise the numerous athletes and participants who will be coming from across the country and other parts of the world for the race.
“Lucozade Sport is recognised globally as the ideal drink for participants of the road races as it has the unique formulation that replaces electrolytes lost in sweat. The product is an isotonic performance fuel that gives you what you need to go on…faster, stronger, for longer. It is this reason that makes the partnership with the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon a perfect fit.
The marathon is another contribution of GSK to the emerging Lagos Mega City concept.
