30th Edition for Malta International Challenge Marathon

Birkirkara St Joseph Sports Club announces special offer for anniversary edition

The 2022 Malta International Challenge Marathon will be celebrating its 30th edition, its actual anniversary having been delayed for two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  

Organiser Birkirkara St. Joseph Sports Club announced a special reduced rate of €75 for entries received between the 8th September and 31st October.  Whilst entries received between the 1st and 24th November will be at €90. Fee applies for both individual and relay teams.  

The Club also announced that participants who have already entered for this year’s race will also benefit from this special rate. A refund of the difference will be given to entrants in the coming days.  

Unique in its format, the Malta International Challenge Marathon, affectionately known as “the Challenge”  by the hundreds of runners that crossed its finish line, is a full marathon spread over a three day period.  Traditionally the Challenge is held on the last weekend of November.

The routes chosen for the three day event were selected to follow World Athletics and AIMS (Association of International Marathon and Distance Races) but at the same time offer some of the most scenic areas of Malta.  

The first leg of the Challenge is at 16km starting and finishing in Siggiewi, the second leg is a short 5km loop in Marsascala, whilst the final leg is the 21km(Half Marathon) route which combines coastal and rural views in the St. Paul’s Bay area.  

The race also welcomes Relays teams, which are the perfect opportunity for athletes who may not wish to run the full distance but would like to be part of a unique running experience. 

The Malta International Challenge Marathon is held under the auspices of Athletics Malta, following World Athletics rules and is an AIMS (Association of International Marathon and Distance Races) certified race.
