    Am happy at last l have gotten a race to participate. My concerns are;
    1. Would there be kilometer marks on the route, so that when we are running would know where we have gotten to.
    2. I hope water too would be at vantage point where necessary i.e, at every 3-4 kilometer there should be water.
    3. No cheating. Where ribbons would be checked at the finished line.
    4. No unauthorized bikes, vehicles and the like should be within athletes. Only athletes must be seen on the route. I have witnessed a race where athletes are being aided by bikes and vehicles to get good positions.
    5. There should be food at the finished point.

    Finally, our finishing time for completing the marathon should be be recorded to motivate we the beginners.
