One of the top athletic events for runners in west Africa is the Accra Millennium Marathon. This years edition comes of Saturday 7th of September which is going to be a 21 kilometre race.
Recently the Daakye Runners Club based at Agona Swedru, Ghana has been outstanding in the male side of every marathon dominating as the winners.
Williams Amponsah and Ishmael Arthur just last month won the Swedru Akwambo Marathon as the first and the second runner up respectively.
Mr Charles Abeiku-Forson the CEO of the club has boldly said that looking at the training his team is going through, no athlete can defeat them in any marathon race in Ghana and even West Africa currently. He also said, he is looking forward to recruit more young athletes to their club early next year thus he is asking for aids from all stake holders and NGOs to support his initiative.
Until the 7th September event is over, we are yet to know if Daakye Runners Club truly rules the marathon competition recently.
