Malta Marathon

2020 GIG Malta Marathon - 1st March

After 34 years of the Malta Marathon, the unthinkable happened. A storm the like of which Malta had never seen hit the island precisely on the day of the 2019 GiG Malta Marathon. The Malta Marathon Organising Committee had no choice but to cancel the event. Malta is known for it's relatively mild weather even in the winter months, this force 12 storm was totally out of it's nature. The decision was a great disappointment for 5,000 participants and the organisers alike. However, after having witnessed the storm everybody understood that the decision was a correct one and that it was in taken in the interest of the safety of the participants, the general public and all third parties involved.

In 2020 we will be back stronger and continue from where we left in 2018.
