Malta Marathon, Half Marathon
& Walk
Sunday 25 February 2018

The Weekend:
'Running Crazy Ltd' were delighted to be invited to visit this event by the organisers, and were impressed with the race, the course, the area, the people, and the island of Malta itself. So much so that we have prepared a package that we believe will be attractive to runners from all countries. Malta is a small island just off the coast of Sicily, Italy. Being in the middle of the Mediterranean it enjoys an idyllic climate - ideal for running. There are great low cost flight deals too.

What is included:
•  Met at Malta's Airport
•  Transfer and return from/to Airport
•  Minimum of 3 Star Hotel Accommodation on Bed & Breakfast basis
•  Hotel conveniently located for race and sightseeing days
•  Guaranteed Race Entry
•  'T-Shirt'
•  Early Morning Call on Race Day
•  Optional After Race Celebration Meal
•  After Race 'Get together' and Party
•  Full Results Service by E-Mail
•  'Running Crazy' guide and suggestions for sightseeing
•  Optional CD-Rom Video Souvenir of Race
•  Race Support
•  Spectator Support
•  Services of a Running Crazy representative
•  Payment of coach ticket to race start lines

The Race:
Race Start Times:
Marathon 0730 - Half Marathon & Walk 0920
Time Limits:
Marathon 5 Hours 30 Minutes - Half Marathon 3 Hours - Walk 4 Hours

Both races start inland at Mdina, an ancient market town. Your entry includes a coach out to the Start. The Coach Pick up point and Race Finish area are just a short walk from our hotel. The Marathon course gets under way early in the morning, and the Half Marathon just 2 hours later. The majority of the Half Marathon course is downhill, so PB's are a possibility here. However if you are not interested in times, then just take in the great views as you head towards the coast. There are Prizes and Age Group categories.

The Course:

Spectators and Supporters:
We know how important spectators and supporters are at these events. We provide a supporters package at no extra charge. We will advise where on the course are the most advantageous spectator positions, and how to get there easily and in time for the race. More often than not we will take you there and join you for a cup of coffee and have a few surprises planned whilst awaiting the first sight of the runners! All our hotels are comfortably furnished with TV and entertainment facilities - many have spas, pools and saunas too

Charity Runners:
'Running Crazy' are delighted to welcome runners who are raising sponsorship for registered charities. We know that the great feeling of accomplishment when completing the race, feels even better when you are helping others in to the bargain! See our Run for Charity link to choose a charity that you can help. Many charities listed there will provide special runners packs including sponsorship forms and tips, and also charity running vests. Just contact them with your details and tell them you intend to run with 'Running Crazy' on their behalf. In addition we will provide you with a 'Running Crazy' Certificate confirming your achievement and result, and also a special commemorative prize. Just specify the charity name in your 'Application'.

Accommodation:
'Running Crazy' have secured 3* Hotel accommodation on a Bed and Breakfast basis at a hotel conveniently located for the race, and also for your sightseeing days. It is well placed for our evening entertainment too.

The Weather:
Malta as a Mediterranean island enjoys a mild climate and at this time of year it is usually ideal for running a distance race.

•    Average Sunshine Hours per day   :    5
•    Wet days in a month    :    9
•    Average Temperatures : 10 - 18 degrees Celsius
•    Average Monthly Rainfall : 2"

Entertainment:
Malta is a tourist island - they are geared up for fun. The people are friendly, English speaking and they drive on the left! There is a lot to do for a short break, and you can top up on your history knowledge too. Visit Valetta, take the ferry to Gozo, or take a fascinating Harbour Cruise. It is even just 90 minutes from Sicily on the fast SeaCat! Alternatively just sun yourself and relax in a harbourside café. We have an optional evening meal available on the night before the race, and a great fun evening programme including another meal in a spectacularly located restaurant, and a party late in to the night to help you celebrate after the race.

Groups:
Malta is a great race for a group of runners. With both a Marathon and a Half Marathon all types of runners can be catered for. There are discounts available for large groups (20+), but even a group of just 10 will qualify for an additional prize for the first or last to finish......you choose! If you have a group interested in joining us, please complete the Groups Application Form, and 'Running Crazy Ltd' will be in touch.

Prices
Our all inclusive prices are extremely competitive - from as little as just £99/€119/US$169 for the weekend - we know we cannot be beaten on price   - and our runners continually tell us that they receive so much more on a 'Running Crazy' weekend break. All our 'resort races' offer half board accommodation, and for our 'Big City' races we know all the best value places to eat, drink and have fun. Indeed we book these for our pre-race and after race gatherings, meaning groups and individuals can just sit back, relax, make new running pals and let us do any worrying. No tourist traps for our clients! We know these races and places inside out, and will advise on what to see and do over the weekend, provide directions and maps - all very useful when on a tight timescale. All you have to do is run!

MALTA - TESTIMONIALS

Deirdre Carmody - Cork, Ireland
Thanks Malcolm for a fantastic time as always. I have travelled to the Benidorm and Malta marathons with running crazy and the care and attention from Malcolm and his staff is really amazing nothing is impossible,they really try their best to ensure their clients happiness. Everything is covered all you have to do is run the miles! Until the next time

James Kerr - Troon, Scotland (originally Perth, Australia)
This is such an awesome concept. Combining running with travel. I had a great time in Malta, nice easy downhill Half Marathon course. Some great people to hang and party with afterwards, and two great organisers in Gerry and Malcolm. You are made to feel so welcome and part of the group. I can recommend this to anyone from your elite super fit athletes, to the more casual want to party and travel, as well as do some running.

Kathy Ling - Wrekin Road Runners
I would like to say a BIG THANKYOU for the Malta Half Marathon. My husband John and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we would recommend 'Running Crazy' to everyone. I would particularly like to thank you for your encouragement over the closing stages - it was like having a Personal Trainer!

Andy Walker - Guernsey, Channel Islands
Hi Malcolm, Cheers for a great time in Malta - My mates Paul and Patrick and I loved it! My sunburn is peeling badly now however! Will see you again.

Hi Malcolm - Just a massive thank you for making our first Marathon an ENJOYABLE experience. Very hard but now we are ready to plan the next one. As honeymooners you made us feel all the more special. Definitely planning our next one with Running Crazy!!!!

James Bringlowe - Aldershot
Malcolm and Gerry really looked after us in Malta and made the weekend. They made sure that everyone felt important, involved and part of the group. Having them near the end to encourage you (and everyone of the group!) on was fantastic. Everything was clear and well organised. I'll be booking again.

Liz Laird - Calne, Wilts
Fabulous weekend in Malta, I had so much fun! Great downhill (thank you!!) course, wonderful organisation and an after race party which won't be forgotten in a while! Another great weekend with Running Crazy. Thank you Malcolm and Gerry.

Theodora - Vaxholm, Sweden
Malcolm (and the rest of Running Crazy), thank you! Thank you for taking care of two, kind of lost, girls who didn't really have much clue what they had signed up for. Thank you for the really great support of you and Gerry, all the race tips, amazing organisation and a very fun weekend! I definitely want to travel with you again, and thanks to all the kind and supporting people. I'm so hooked on running, and want to continue competing. Hope to see you again.
