Official Press Statement

The organizers of Bonny Island Marathon is pleased to announce an open call for registration for the 2021 annual Bonny Island Marathon. It will be held on Saturday, December 11, 2021 in Bonny Island of Rivers State, Nigeria.

Registration is FREE and opens from October 8, 2021 till November 10, 2021.

As usual, participants are welcome to register across professional, amateur or leisure categories.

This year with amazing cash prizes to be won across several categories, the number of participants are expected to be moderate. There have been several improvements especially paying attention to health, safety, security, children participation and special groups like people with disability.

Without overlooking the fact that we still have COVID-19 realities, we are carefully increasing the number of participants. We are also advising participants to carry out personal health assessment and also to follow the guidelines set out by the NCDC.

The Marathon day always has a different feel. It was slightly challenging because we had to share the road with motorists. So you'll have to run with high consciousness on safety. Thank God for the BONNY Island Marathon team for putting safety measures in place.

For the past three years, the Bonny Island Marathon has taken the stage to promote the sports - tourism sector of Bonny Island as a growing metro area while also discovering, promoting and exporting emerging Athletes. We want to do more.

We use this opportunity to call on interested stakeholders, brands and organizations who are willing to work with the vision of taking grassroots sports and sports-tourism to the next level in Rivers State - Nigeria to join us as partners and sponsors.

For inquiries, registration and other information please visit the official website @ or call 08035692756.


The organizers of Bonny Island Marathon reserves the right to modify any aspect of the Marathon they so wish.
