For the past 7 years, on the last Sunday of September, the Accra International Marathon has been held. This popular event is aimed at promoting active healthy lifestyles and fitness and to increase life expectancy among Ghanaians. This year's event will take place 29 September 2013.
They attract a truly international group of runners, many who have visited Africa for the first time. In doing so, this event also puts Ghana on the world map as a desirable tourism destination for health enthusiasts.
This year will include a special group of marathoners traveling all the way from California with Judge Craig Mitchell who has introduced marathon running to them as a way to improve the quality of their lives (read more).
The event features a Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, 5K and Team Relay Races. The finish line leads the runners to the back lawn of the lovely Labadi Beach Hotel where there are vendors, food and entertainment. It is really a great way to spend the day.
The Accra International Marathon is also a fundraising vehicle for the The Longevity Project.

Also, I have had the privilege to tour the full Blue Skies plant and to see their operations up close. I learned more about their corporate culture. The level of professionalism, good hygiene and sense of camaraderie and mutual respect between all levels of co-workers was truly impressive. It makes enjoying their products and supporting their company even more fun.
You don't have to drive to Doboro to find Blue Skies products. Most good quality stores and the finer restaurants have them in stock. If you haven't tried Blue Skies yet, do so soon. You will be glad you did.
