Overview

The topographical features and the bad state of a number of roads surrounding Zurrieq make finding an ideal route a difficult task. The Zurrieq Half Marathon was known for it's tough course so the Malta Marathon Organising Committee's prime task when asked to organise this event by the Zurrieq Wolves Athletic Club in 2013 was to change the route to one that was less strenuous and more attractive to prospective participants. Together with a new half marathon route the MMOC had to find a 10K route that was to be incorpoarted as a new event with the half marathon.

We believe that we have found 2 routes that will no longer make the Zurrieq event known for it's tough route. With the right weather conditions and a strong runner we are bound to see the Zurrieq Half Marathon record beaten.

Both the half marathon and 10K pass by a number of surrounding villages.
