Many Changes for the 4. Edition of African Mountain Running Championship at Obudu (Nigeria). - 16 November 2012 Print
2012aac.jpgAn Important edition of the Eighth Obudu International Mountain Race will be hosted in Nigeria on November 17th 2012.
The most important aspect is the new route of the race: a staff of Turkish experts, along with  Nigerian workers (100 people), under the direction of Erhan Basoglu prepared a new track for the race, following WMRA recommendations for the parameters to satisfy the expectations of the Nations of the WMRA for the 30. World Mountain Running Championships on 2014.
The track of the course has changed to standardise the terrain after the presentation of the official application bid in Italy last September.
Much work was involved and included two small bridges that were built for crossing little rivers.
The test of the race course will be very important.
At the last WMRA Congress it was decided to accept the application from NAF and Cross River State under conditions that some important organisational aspects will be tested during 2012 and 2013.
Another important step for improving logistical and organisational matters was the fact that top athletes this year arrived to the venue of the competition by plane.
The Sen. Liyel Imoke, Governor of Cross River State, organised the operation and opening of Bebi airstrip that is very near to Obudu Ranch Cattle.
This means that the athletes avoided the long  transfer by bus arrived directly to Bebi airstrip from Lagos.
The transfer from Bebi airstrip to Obudu was less than one hour.
In 2014, for the World Mountain Running Championships each athlete who competes in the race will receive a minimum financial support of $550 towards the costs to fly to Lagos or Abuja.
The costs of the trip to Bebi airstrip and return would be borne by the LOC.
