The inaugural Malta Marathon was held in 1986 with 109 local and foreign participants. A half marathon was incorporated in 1989 and the number of participants grew slowly year by year. In 2009 we hit the 1, 000 participants for the first time.
“By enhancing the Malta Marathon in every way possible we have made big steps over the last 5 years with each year seeing a record number of participants. This year will be no exception as there will be some 4, 000 participants, ” says Joe Micallef – Malta Marathon Race director.
“One way in which we have greatly managed to enhance the Malta Marathon is by having introduced Pic2Go in 2013, this will be the 3rd consecutive year in which we will be using the Pic2Go service, ” he added.
