The highly-anticipated third edition of the La Valette Marathon, a full or half marathon event, is set to take place on March 24, 2024, in Malta, often referred to as the ‘jewel of the Mediterranean.’

The La Valette Marathon by Corsa is not just a race; it’s an immersive experience that combines the thrill of running with a captivating journey through Malta’s rich cultural heritage. Runners will have the idyllic Mediterranean Sea on their left as they follow an entirely coastal route certified by the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS). This Marathon allows participants to immerse themselves in this enchanting world while pursuing their passion for running.

With its 7000 years of history, Malta is like an open-air museum. The marathon route will take participants past medieval fortifications, and iconic landmarks, providing a unique opportunity to run alongside the island’s remarkable past. As runners navigate the coastal route, they’ll also be treated to breathtaking vistas of the Mediterranean Sea, its crystal-clear waters glistening under the Maltese sun. The scenic beauty of Malta will be their constant companion, with the added allure of delightful weather in March, boasting average temperatures of 17 degrees.

The La Valette Marathon offers options for both seasoned marathoners and those looking to conquer their first half marathon. Whether it’s 42 kilometres or 21 kilometres, participants will experience the magic of Malta. For those who are looking for a different challenge, the La Valette Marathon also caters for running teams interested in their Relay, and those who want to take in the views at a slower pace with their 21 kilometre Walkathon.
