He noted that participants and organizers of the marathon will have a special clearance that will ease their movement within the sanitation hours.

“This is to clarify that the scheduled Cross River State maiden Marathon event will still take place as planned this Saturday, March, 3Oth, 2024 by 7. am.

“It will happen simultaneously with the monthly sanitation exercise which is between 6. am to 10 am as announced by the Ministry of Environment.

“The 14 km marathon, which will commence by 7 am, will take off from the Millennium Park through the entire Carnival route and terminate at the Marina resort.
