“The first edition of the Gozo Half Marathon took place on the 6th of February 1977, placing it as the first ever running event to be held on the Maltese islands. In 1977, the Gozo Half Marathon was organised for 35 participants. 40 years later, we could boast a participation of more than 800 athletes.
The Gozo Half Marathon has evolved into one of the main sporting events in Gozo and one of the most craved marathons in the Maltese Islands. It is successfully coordinated by a group of youths coming from the Xaghra Youth Centre. Recent accomplishments include the three-star Certification award from ‘European Athletics’, which eventually resulted in the exclusive invite to participate in the first ever European Running Business Conference, which took place in Frankfurt, Germany.”
