12 Hilarious tweets from Lagos Marathon 2017 #RunLagos

The Access Bank Lagos City marathon held today, 11th of February in Lagos state of Nigeria and Kenyans became the new Nigerians.They took all our money home.

Some people are wondering why they were even invited and some people say they should be banned from competing next year. You know that guy? We mean Abraham Kiptum who won the
marathon last year and this year’s marathon, we would love to know which hospital he was born in and what he eats daily please.

This is because we love Nigerians and we need to give them tips on eating those ‘speed’ foods so they can win next years marathon. We are not happy that we gave away dollars that we are even looking for.

Read some hilarious tweets below:

So no Nigerian in this country could outrun one guy from Kenya and keep our scarce $ here? That’s it, I’m running next yr #LagosCityMarathon
