Barely minutes to the start of the 2017 edition of the Lagos City Marathon, some athletes were caught taking a nap before the 42km race.

Thousands of participants made their way to Surulere, the starting point of the event, as early as 4am, with many saying they want to get the ultimate prize.

Winner of this year’s event will take home $50,000 while the first and second runner up will bag $40,000 and $30,000 respectively.
