Gebreselassie to hold clinic at GLO Lagos Marathon

World marathon record holder, Haile Gebreselassie of Ethiopia, is to make a star appearance at this year’s Glo Lagos International Half Marathon coming up on February 21, 2009.

While in the country, the fastest long distance runner will pair up with three- time world Half Marathon record holder, Lornah Kiplagat of Netherlands to hold an educative and inspirational clinic for young upcoming athletes on the eve of the half Marathon in Lagos. The Ethiopian will also spare time to interact with the press on arrival at the airport.

The duo of Gebreselassie and Kiplagat will lead an array of 44 international road runners to the Glo Lagos half marathon.

Two former Lagos Half marathon Champions : Millicent Boadi of Ghana who won the Lagos International Half Marathon in 2005 and Dieudonne Disi from Rwanda who won the first Glo Lagos Half Marathon in 2007 have equally confirmed their participation in this year’s Lagos road race.
