The Ga Traditional Council (GTC) has endorsed the 2023 edition of the Accra Inter-City Homowo Marathon (AICHM) as part of activities marking this year’s Ga Homowo Festival.

He said the support of the Council ensured a successful maiden edition last year, and called for a similar support in the coming event.
Nettey said the organisers have learnt from their mistakes in the previous event and were looking forward to having better event this year.
King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, the Ga Mantse, through his linguist said the Accra Inter-City Homowo Marathon had the full backing of the Council.
He urged the organisers to ensure that winners were brought to the palace after the race.
