Kwahu is the best place in Ghana to be during every Easther festival. This year the festival was graced with a Marathon to help project the emerging athletic youth into the sports scenes. Over thousands of athletic professionals all over the country participated and the challenge was amazing.
It’s now obvious that the Agona Swedru base Daakye Runners club is taking over Ghana marathons as their top skanker William Amponsah who recently set a huge record at the Legon Marathon and also a runner-up at Dubai Marathon today 20th April, taking the trophy of Kwahu Marathon on his shoulder to prove he is the current champion in Ghana.
The 2 runner-up Seidu Salifu is also from Daakye Runners Club and this really shows the Agona Swedru base club is having more to offer to our athletic fraternity both home and abroad.
William was supposed to represent Ghana at the 2019 Boston Marathon in the USA but due to undisclosed reasons he couldn’t participate.
Speaking to the Manager Mr Charles Abeiku-Forson aka Daakye, he said his team is ready to take Ghana far and as at now they are on preparation for international Marathon in Canada in few months to come.
