As one of the biggest sporting events in the country, the annual Access Bank Marathon has quietly become the country’s biggest gathering of athleisure enthusiasts, who enjoy the athleticism of sportswear and its intersection with fashion. Last year we saw a good number of interesting colour combinations and athleisure styles and were inspired to take on the trend for ourselves. As such when this year’s event was announced, we began to anticipate an even more stylish marathon.
The 2018 Access Bank Marathon happened over the weekend and as expected, Lagosians did not for one second disappoint. With thousands of young, stylish Nigerians coming out to participate in the festivities, we were assured only the best and most stylish trend in current athleisure. Because we believe we shouldn’t enjoy these great looks alone, we have compiled a small gallery of sorts for you to get some style inspiration for all the sports events coming this year.
