A Race For Runners, By Runners
The Intersport La Valette Malta Marathon was originally coined by three members of the Malta Running Community; Fabio Spiteri, Charlie Demanuele, and Mattthew Pace, who saw the potential of an internationally recognized marathon in Malta, and wanted to give participants the opportunity to have a race experience that makes the most of Malta and its historic sites.
The route starts in the bustling coastal town of Sliema, continuing up the coast to Malta’s Capital City and UNESCO World Heritage site, Valletta. Participants will cross the finish-line in the Three Cities. The route has been measured, approved and listed by the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races, and is Malta’s only internationally recognized full marathon.
The Intersport La Valette Malta Marathon is supported by Visit Malta.
