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.
This is a medium-level marathon - the half marathon has a 132m elevation gain and a 143m elevation loss with a net loss of 11 metres overall and the full marathon has a 302m elevation gain and a 318m elevation loss netting a 16m drop for an average-paced race.
The La Valette Malta Marathon is a road marathon with a mostly smooth, paved route. There are areas where the paving is slightly erratic but for the most part we can consider this a road race.
There is a 21.1km half marathon and the same route will be used for a walkathon.
