The Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium in Tamale, will this year host the first edition of the Ghana National Petroleum Company (GNPC), Ghana Fastest Human race on Saturday, April 27.

The event is expected to attract runners from the Upper East, Upper West and Northern regions, to battle for places in the national event later in the year.

Mr. Reks Brobby, founder of GNPC Ghana Fastest Human, said, "it is yet another year and we are good to go. We have put measures in place by way of logistics to ensure we deliver a top class event.

"It is the very first regional meet this year and so we have invested much regarding preparation-from our side as organisers through our sponsors to the main characters, the athletes," he added.

The event is sponsored by GNPC with support from Adidas, Moringa King, Global Media Alliance, Kriate Lync, Indomie Instant Noodles and Wrenco Printing.

The GNPC Ghana Fastest Human race is an initiative aimed at reviving short distance race in schools and communities, with the main target of preparing athletes to run and win the sprint races at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.
