About Xterra GOZO Trail 50km, 21km

A coast-hugging, 50km/21km trail-running event that circumvents the island of Gozo, a jewel in the Mediterranean and sister island of Malta. One of the most beautiful venues for a race is in springtime, in the Mediterranean, and the island of Gozo is the perfect mix of beach, cliff-edge, lush valleys and small villages.

The race cut-off times are relaxed to encourage beginners to take part, and those wishing to enjoy the trail, rather than race it. The 21km trail is run over the last part of the course, finishing in Ghajnsielem. Avid cyclists are encouraged to participate in the Mountain Bike Challenge that follows the 50km run route.

This event is organised by Hellfire Events, the same organisers of Xterra Malta, and is fast becoming an international attraction for the Island of Gozo, with over 20 countries participating. Whilst the field is small, the organisation is top-notch, with volunteers manning rest & food stops along the route and full mobile Accident & Emergency crew throughout the race.
