The Gozo Half Marathon is the oldest athletic event in the Maltese islands being held for the first time in 1977 with he event being organized by the Xaghra Youth Centre, a non-profit youth organization. Apart from the half marathon, an 8 mile race as well as a MTB 13.1 mile race are held. Children can participate in 2km or 4km races, with a 2km Fun Run open for all ages. Definitely an event for the whole family in the sunny Mediterrenean island of Gozo.
The race starts and ends at Xaghra square. The route goes through a number of Gozo villages, while at the same time being able to enjoy spectacular countryside views. If you are up for a challenge, we suggest you participate - the last uphill is a killer!
