Warri Effurun Peace Marathon

More than 800 marathons are held throughout the world each year and for various purposes e.g. charity, sporting event, for peace and also as memorials. The Warri Effurun Peace Marathon is for peace.
Many of the competitors of Warri Effurun Peace Marathon are recreational athletes, sport lovers or those interested in charity, peace work etc. In the last Warri Effurun Peace Marathons, we had over 3,000 thousands of participants including par parathletes.

The Warri Effurun Peace Marathon is a 10KM marathon designed to promote peace and revive economic development in Warri, this once peaceful and economic hub of Delta state, is now the oil city ravaged by years of tribal wars and ethnic squabbles.

Running a marathon can improve your physical health in numerous ways. It can help you sleep better, strengthen and tone your leg, help you burn calories,  weight and put in good shape. Marathon training has a way of challenging even the fittest athletes and above all it has the capacity to bring a community together, the almost half marathon is striving towards this goal in the Oil city of Warri.

In a tweet, replying Barrack Obama, World Marathon record holder Eluid Kipchoge, who ran the full length of a marathon (26 miles 385 yards) under two hours, crossing the finish line at 1 hour 59 minutes 40 seconds in Vienna said. Running World is a peaceful World. This we believe strongly, this is why for the past 4 years we’ve invested time, energy and resources in a running Warri.
The Warri Effurun Peace Marathon has a rich heritage of promoting peace, unity, security, health and economic growth in the oil city of Warri. It started in 2016 and it's gradually becoming one of the oldest and safest marathon in Nigeria.
The Warri Effurun Peace Marathon will be celebrating her 5th anniversary, on the 28th of March 2020. 5 years of consistently promoting peace through running and youth engagement. The promise from our convener Mrs. Joyce Broderick Bozimo in her own words "It's not only going to be the biggest sporting event in Delta State, it's also going to be exciting, laced with amazing prizes to be won by contestants and networking opportunities.
