24th Feb 2013
I ran a marathon over here yesterday - it was absolutely freezing!!
I've had a look at the average temperatures and it should be roughly 15'c so hopefully it wont be too cold. I've heard that our biggest issue is the rain!
Hi Mel - we're expecting more snow tonight... lets hope its not too bad.
I was at a race yesterday and got talking to a few guys going to Malta. They love it and go back every year. The only issue they mentioned was the rain and surface water if a big shower happens. Let's hope that it stays nice and dry!
Maybe I'll run round in my speedos then if it's going to be a wet one!!
Only kidding - I wouldn't inflict that on the population of Malta!!
Hi Emmy H mentioned a facebook page could you tell me what this is please? Flying out on Saturday and hoping for a bit of sunshine. Looking forward to it......
Have a look at the group here.
I'll be heading over and we're planning on hiring some bikes to recce the course before hand
One week to go - looking forward to my first trip to Malta
Hi Andy - You're not the only one! I just have the matter of a small 50km this weekend
I've been looking through the guidebook about things to do and where to visit. Has anyone visited before and can offer some recommendations?
I don't mind it a little warmer as long as it doesnt rain!
50km?? - good luck with that Emmy
It's normal Mel to feel like that - I'm running the half so am feeling a bit more relaxed, but I have the Reading Half Marathon on 17th March as my next event.
You should have all received emails from the weekend re: race numbers etc. Once you have this - you can register to have all of your pics uploaded directly to facebook:
"Calling all Malta Marathon/Half marathon athletes, do not forget to register your race bib number on http://www.shvoong.co.il/gillettemalta/ and have your race photos uploaded to FB automatically while you run! - it's fun and it's free."
Andy P - Yes... turned out to be 53km :/ Feeling a tad sore today.
@Mel - you're normal I use this time for cross training to avoid getting too itchy. Nothing serious - just gentle swimming/cycling. Nothing that will stress or strain you but will give you the enjoyment of being active without risking injury (hopefully!)
Well done Emmy - 53km - awesome.
flying out to Malta tomorrow - well excited
I was out shooting photos, may have some pics of you. I'd be happy to forward any originals. Feel free to have a look: http://s1064.beta.photobucket.com/user/danconanick/library/Malta%20Marathon%202013
