The Kwahu Traditional Council (KTC), Let’s Tour Kwahu – a tourism promotion outfit – in collaboration with Medivent Consult – an event management outfit – would this year organise the first-ever Kwahu Easter Marathon and Community Gala as part of activities for the 2018 Easter celebrations.
The event, which is aimed at giving the youth of Kwahu the opportunity to exhibit their sporting talents and also change the face of the festival, would be held on Saturday, March 24 and March 30, 2018.
The 40-kilometre marathon would commence at Nkawkaw, through the principal towns and the mountains, with the finishing point at the premises of KTC, Mpraeso, where the KwahuheneDaasebreAkuamoah Agyepong II and his elders are expected to receive participants and present prizes to the winners.
In a statement signed by Edward K. Boahen, Project Co-ordinator of Medivent Consult, said though the marathon is part of the Kwahu Easter activities, the youth across Ghana, as well as foreigners, are eligible to participate in it.
The statement said the marathon would seek to provide a platform for social interaction and a healthy competition for participants.
According to the statement, interested participants are expected to pick registration forms at the front desk of Kwahu Traditional Council, Agoo FM and Ghana News Agency (GNA) at a fee of GH¢20 or contact 050-33636364 or 0242-837777 or 0545748380.
The statement said the Community Gala would feature 16 communities, who would engage in a gala from March 30 to April 1.
He said there would be attractive prizes for winners of the two events, and the details would be announced at the launch of the events on a date to be announced by the organisers.
