Hi all,

The Malta Marathon applications have just opened and I wanted to see if there were any other forumites thinking of running this race next year?

I've heard a lot of good things about the race itself so i'm looking forward to it!

Hi Emmy (me again)

I'm planning to go across but haven't booked up yet.  Are you booking it yourself or going through a tour operator? Friend of mine have done it before and recommend it too  - they'll be there again.

Hi Andy Nice to see a familiar face! Yes, i'll be organising this myself. You can book transport to the star through the marathon organisers so its very easy to sort out. I'm looking at recommendations for what to do in the days around the marathon and then go from there.

It's going to be a good race, I think!

I did the half marathon a few years ago. The marathon started earlier and we joined them when they were just past halfway. One of our group was doing the 26.2 and said the influx of fresh legs really helped him. Better than similar events in this country where you all start together and 90% peel off at half distance.

Hi Invisible Man. that's good to know that there's going to be 'new blood' along the course. I agree - I hope that it'll help give me a second wind!

Are you back again for next year's edition?

I tend to run things only once because there are thousands of events that I've not done and I want to do as many different things as I can.

Thanks for the info Emmy

I'll get myself in gear this weekend to book everything then. Really looking forward to going.  My plan is to go Friday and come back Monday.

Im thinking of running it next year as I wanted to run it the previous year. We have accomodation as my girlfriends family have a place there so I only need to worry about flights. do you think that anyone will put any extra flights on around the weekend?

27/10/2012 at 15:16
Hi Andrew, I don't think so but from what I've seen - its daily bi-daily flights

That's reminded me - not booked my flights yet!!

Neither have i.... :/ I still need to sort out my accommodation as well. I asked on the facebook group and have got some good recommendations fromthere.

The main issue for me is going to be picking up my race number as i wont get in until 7.15 on the saturday evening.

Well I've just booked my flights for the marathon and it was only ??125 each with easyjet. Now we've got to figure out how to get to the start on the Sunday. Easy jet have a 20% sale on at the mo

A bus goes from Sliema Ferries to the start. Buy your ticket when you pick up your number.

Hi all,

There's a facebook group with a lot of info about the event and general pick up information.

I'm really looking forward to it!

@Adam - how is your training going?

@Mel - welcome to the thread - what sort of time are you going for? how has your training been?

01/02/2013 at 09:57
Hi! Thanks for the welcome! Training is going quite well thanks! I ran the Zurich marathon new years eve which helped. I am hoping for a sub 3.30 but not sure if I'm in the right shape. I did 3h 24 in Rome last year, but much heavier now lol!

How is everyone else's training going? Thanks for all the advice!
01/02/2013 at 10:02

Sub 3.30?! that's certainly speedy! I hope that you can achieve your goal!

Training hasnt been too good lately. I ran a double in January and followed by a few very stressful weeks at work - i've not been able to get in the time to train.

When is everyone flying out to Malta? We're heading out Wednesday and planning to relax for a few days before the race.

Ran the Wokingham Half-Marathon yesterday, and I was pleased to finish strongly. Fingers crossed for Malta, and I'm certainly hoping the weather will be better than yesterday!!!
