The Gozo Half Marathon was organised for the first time in Xagħra, Gozo on the 6th February, 1977. Back then about 35 competitors took part but this number has increased dramatically over the years with locals and visitors from other European countries now joining this annual event. Apart from the half marathon, the event hosts an 8mile (12.9km) run, and a 4km and 2 km race for younger athletes, making it an ideal event fro the whole family. The half marathon route is of varying elevation and takes the participants through various Gozitan villages and breathtaking views of the island’s landscapes.
