Ismael Sadjo posted a blistering 29mins, 45secs to win the 2021 Warri/Effurun Peace Marathon concluded in Warri, Delta State, at the weekend.

Subject to rectification, Sadjo’s time is a new 10km national record. He proved too strong for other competitors in the men’s race, and there was no doubt about his intentions to clinch the N1m to prize.

Stephen Joshua Daylop was second, finishing at 30.54secs, while 2019 champion, Emmanuel Gyan, was third with 31.04secs.
In the women’s race, Joy Abiye-David also created a new course record. She clocked 35.02, while Rose Akusho was second with 35.04. Moseje Vera Yohanna finished third at 36.30seconds.
Delta State Deputy Governor Kingsley Brurutu Otuaro, flagged off the race.
“It was indeed a pleasure completing in the Warri Effurun Peace marathon,” Sadjo said. “I am equally pleased running a good time. I really worked hard at training, and I am happy my efforts are yielding results.”
