Land Rover Malta Marathon
Year after year the Land Rover Malta Marathon surprises all North European competitors with its sunny, warm temperatures: the perfect excuse for pulling on those shorts and a running vest and taking part in a race you will not forget for a long time!
Fifty-eight miles south of Sicily, almost slap-bang in the middle of the blue Mediterranean, the Maltese archipelago comprises three inhabited islands, Malta, Gozo and Comino. Although small in size the Maltese Islands are amazingly full of interesting sights and openly welcome you to discover their beauty.
Participate in either the Malta 1/2 Marathon or the Malta Full Marathon, whichever you prefer and enjoy this historic and beautiful island on our running holiday package. What a great place for your marathon holiday! Your marathon race entry includes a Land Rover Malta Marathon T-Shirt and an official race magazine (including route map), which will be given out at registration. A commemorative Land Rover Malta Marathon medal will be presented to all competitors who finish the full marathon or the half marathon events.
The Full Marathon starts from outside the bastions of Malta’s old capital Mdina, heads through the main road of Rabat, then heads west before turning north in a loop incorporating the famous town of Mosta. After Mosta, it continues back onto the main road from Mdina to Valetta, through some of Malta’s urban areas. The route passes by Floriana before reaching the water side and following through Gzira to the finish on the scenic front of Sliema. The half marathon follows most of the marathon route, except for the loop around and about Mosta.
Both the Marathon and Half Marathon routes are predominantly downhill, with the start being at 200metres above sea level and the finish at sea level. We thought you'd like to know what one of our customers thought of the Malta Marathon in February of this year.
