History and culture come together beautifully with the La Valette Malta Marathon!
The first AIMS accredited marathon and half marathon in Malta, The La Valette Malta Marathon is organised by Corsa race events. The route takes runners along some of the most breathtaking views on the island, running all along the historical Valletta coast, with open seas on one side and the majestic medieval fortifications on the other. The race passes by the Grand Harbour and finishes in style in Vittoriosa in the historical centre of the The Three Cities.
Both events will be held on February 5th 2023 to make the best of the Mediterranean climate with an average temperature of 14°C. This gives anyone, from budding runners to elite athletes, the opportunity to form part of the most important event on the athletic calendar of Malta.
