Okpekpe runners to get certificate of attendance
Information Technology and Social Media Coordinator for the race, Diran Mabo, revealed that all arrangements have been concluded to ensure that all runners got certificates that will confirm their participation, as well as the times they ran.
“It will contain their results and their details,” said Mabo, who explained that participants could keep the certificate to prove to either their children or friends they once participated in the Okpekpe 10km road race or show their level of fitness for any purpose it may be needed for.
“This is one of the reasons we launched the tracking application for the race. It will not only be used by family and friends to track their loved ones or friends, the participants, whether those running for the prize monies or for causes or even for fun, will also use it to print out their certificates of participation.
“They don’t need to go to any office or queue up after the race for any certificate. We have made it very easy for all registered runners to print their own certificates of participation whenever they want and wherever they are. All they need to do is download the app, which is available on iPhone and Android App stores,” he said.
