Mr. Penni said the decision to select the marathon for the top Ghanaian athlete was due to the rich history of the Marathon International De Marrakesh, which has existed for 31 years.

According to Mr. Penni his outfit has plans for giving athletes competitive platforms to perform adding that plans were in place to have more international collaborations.
