As part of the events being organised for the free travel to Gozo Weekend, Athletix Gozo AC will be organising a number of athletics events aimed for children aged 5 to 13yrs.  The events are intended for both those children who already participate in athletics and those who want to try running, jumping and throwing for the first time.  No previous experience / training is necessary for participation and all participants will be awarded a medal for their efforts.  Trophies will also be handed out to winners of each age group category and event.


A special feature of this event will consist of exhibition races by some of the top Maltese sprinters, including twice Sports Women of the Year and Diane Borg, and Olympian Rachid Chouhal.  These sprinters will show off their speed over the 60m distance, immediately prior to the finals of the kids events.


Adults who wish to participate, both males and females, are invited for a 3km run.


The event will be held on Sunday 17th November at the new athletics track at the Gozo Secondary School in Rabat, starting at 1.30pm.  Registrations can be sent (or at the gate) with further details being available from website.
