Über GiG Malta Marathon

The Malta Marathon is a near-miracle, taking place on a tiny island of only 122 square miles. The 2018 Malta Marathon once again had a record number of participants and following it's great success.

After 34 years of the Malta Marathon, the unthinkable happened. A storm the like of which Malta had never seen hit the island precisely on the day of the 2019 GiG Malta Marathon. The Malta Marathon Organising Committee had no choice but to cancel the event. Malta is known for it's relatively mild weather even in the winter months, this force 12 storm was totally out of it's nature. The decision was a great disappointment for 5,000 participants and the organisers alike. However, after having witnessed the storm everybody understood that the decision was a correct one and that it was in taken in the interest of the safety of the participants, the general public and all third parties involved.

In 2020 we will be back stronger and continue from where we left in 2018.

The Malta Marathon & Half Marathon routes have changed many times over the years since the inaugural Malta Marathon which was held in 1986. Faster and less traffic congested roads have always been sought, hence the changes. The new routes used in 2014 are an evolution from previous routes used. These have been found to be the best when considering Malta's geographical layout and size. The routes both start from outside Mdina, Malta's previous capital and finish in Sliema with a drop of 200 metres from start to finish.

HIGHLIGHTS

This marathon course consist of beautiful and historic sites, runners will be marveled when they encounter these scenic landmarks. The megalithic temples at Hagar Qim Ggantija, and Mnajdra, dating back 3,000 years. From the Stone Age, Ghar Dalam and Skorba. From the Copper Age, Xemxija Tombs and Mgarr temples are just a few sites that runners will stumble upon.

ÜBERBLICK

The Full Marathon which starts at 0730 from outside the bastions of Malta’s old capital Mdina, heads through the main road of Rabat, down through Nigret and onto the Mtarfa by-pass to get to 6km mark in Ta’Qali.

The route will take the athletes round Ta’ Qali, down to Attard, through Mosta, back to Attard, round Ta’ Qali again and back to where the 6km was, at this point it will be 24km. The new route does not go down towards the centre of Attard as it previously did but turns left upon reaching Attard just after the 11km mark. 

From the 24th km, the Marathon Route passes from in front of the American Embassy, out of Ta’ Qali and down again towards Attard. This time the route passes through the old part of Attard, right in front of the Attard parish church and to Mriiehel and through Mriehel industrial estate before catching the Mriehel and Hamrun/Marsa by-passes. The distance taken off at Attard and some changes at Ta' Qali have been added with the inclusion of the Mriehel industrial estate.

From the Hamrun/Marsa by-pass the route goes down on to the December 13th Road and then on to Blata L-Bajda. The last 5km of the route passes along the Sa’ Maison, Pieta, Msida, Ta’ Xbiex and Gzira waterfronts up to the finish in Sliema.

The Half Marathon and 'Endo' Walkathon also start from outside Mdina but at 0915 and will head straight towards the Roman Villa and Nigret, on to the Mtarfa by-pass and down to the Military cemetry. From here the route will not go through Ta' Qali but will go straight to the Rabat Road and down towards Attard.

From the exit of Ta' Qali the Half Marathon route will continue on the Full Marathon Route right to the finish in Sliema.

A 2.5 metre lane along most of the roads from the 31st Km to the 40th Km of the Full Marathon (10th Km to the 19th Km of the Half Marathon), will be cordoned off with cones for runners.

Both the Marathon and Half Marathon routes are predominantly downhill, with the start being at 200metres and the finish at sea level. Whereas the Half Marathon heads directly to the finish after the 1st km from the start, the Marathon deviates from this direction with a small loop within Ta’ Qali (6th to 10th Km), followed by a larger loop from the 12th Km to the 27th km, that takes the athletes from Attard, through Mosta, Attard again and back to Ta’ Qali.
