The 2017 Lagos Women Run has been scheduled  to hold on  Saturday.

The General Coordinator of the Lagos Women Run, Tayo Popoola, said the race would begin at the National Stadium, adding that the event was in line with the Lagos State’s Government’s initiative for women.

Popoola said more women would participate at this year’s edition after the successes recorded at the inaugural event in 2016.

“The Lagos Women Run is a 10km  event where women from different spheres of life will converge to do a lot of things together. It’s not just about a group of women in a sports competition racing to reach the finish line in order to win the prize money.

“It is a run that comes in many facets with a lot of attachments. There will be women who will come and run against cancer, some will run for campaign against women brutality and other social vices against the well-being of women, which have been frowned on by society.”
