Spotlight on Labadi Beach Hotel, Our Finish Line Venue Sponsor

Dear Aspiring AIMers,

Race Director EkuaWe are delighted to shine the spotlight on one of our most faithful sponsors, the 5-star Labadi Beach Hotel (LBH). Some of you, we have learned, are significantly motivated to AIM by the idea of rewarding yourself with a breezy, easy afternoon on the clean and lovely premises and beach of this award-winning hotel.

Once again, the hotel, site of our Finish Line venue, has extended its best discounted rates to registered AIMers. Once your registration has been confirmed, simply alert us of your plan to lodge at LBH, and we will issue you a special code for your booking. Check out the preferential rates here.

Labadi Beach Hotel's Taste of CultureWhy not celebrate a successful week of training by treating yourself to a sampling of delectable cuisine from every region—yes, all 10 regions—of Ghana. The Taste of Culture (see flyer) culinary experience is now available every Saturday from 12h30 to 15h00 hours served with tasty highlife tunes from Music Tiger’s Combo.

If you love to eat like I do (that’s why I got into running—to eat to my heart’s content without guilt), you will love this post-training ritual after a good Saturday morning run, jog or walk. I hope to see you there. In the meantime, happy and safe training.

ciao for now,
ekua
AIM Race Director

PS: Don’t forget: AIM well; AIM often; get all your friends and loved ones to AIM; and please support our Charity Partners.
