Millennium Marathon Sporting Limited (MMSL), organisers of the annual Millennium Marathon competition, will hold a diet and nutrition, as well as a health and fitness summit, as part of activities aimed at giving more benefit to participants in this year’s event.
According to Ashim Morton, the Co-founder of the MMSL, the introduction of the diet and fitness, which have direct impact on athletes, is intended to add to the growing benefits of the race.
On Saturday, the Healthy Cuisine Fair will come off at the Accra Polo Club. The one-day event will begin with a talk on the need for athletes to pay attention to what they eat, when and how they eat those foods, after which there will be a food bazaar.
The bazaar will provide an opportunity for vendors of various foods items to introduce their products to the athletes and help them make the right choices.
The sports fashion show will be organised by Beautiful Beneath at the Alisa Hotel
The Health and Fitness summit will be held three days later, on September 18, at the British Council in Accra.
The summit, which will be run by Impact Clinic, official medical outfit for the 2018 Millennium Marathon, is meant to equip the athletes with the necessary health information as they prepare for the main event.
Also on Wednesday, September 19, there will be a sports fashion show at the Alisa Hotel which is organised by Beautiful Beneath Sports Shop based at East Legon, while a pasta party will also be held on September 21 at the offices of the Millennium Marathon Sporting Limited at Nima ahead of the main event on September 22.
Meanwhile, three new winners emerged last Saturday at the seventh bi-monthly raffle draw of the 2018 Millennium Marathon held on the premises of Brand Mania Limited, importers of Garmin products, at Osu in Accra.

For their prizes, the three winners took home Garmin products to help them work on their fitness ahead of the main event slated for the Independence Square on September 22.
