New Race Routes announced

Following the hand over to Birkirkara St. Joseph Sports Club, the Malta International Challenge Marathon has recently launched a new look and feel, online registration, as well as changes to the race routes.

A fresh, simple design was used for the new Malta International Challenge Marathon logo, designed by Delta Media Services. The line chosen by the Club was to reinforce their yellow and black presence, two colours synonymous with the Club. The inclusion of two runners in the design and the eight pointed Maltese cross complete the overall design.

To complement the new look and feel exercise a completely brand new website (http://maltachallengemarathon.com) has been launched. A long overdue and most welcomed feature of the new website is that it online registration from any device and from anywhere in the world to be carried out is now possible.

Race Registration is now open and registrations are being accepted for the full distance (42.195 kilometres), individual distances – 10 miles (16.0934kms), 5k and 21km, as well as relay teams where teams of three athletes cover the whole distance.

“A lot of care and attention to detail was put into the design of the new website. The design followed substantial consultation and involvement from athletes who not only are very familiar with the Malta International Challenge Marathon and its mechanics but also race abroad regularly which makes them qualified to share their online user experience. This naturally gave us the necessary tools to ensure that their needs and expectations of such services are met”, said Raymond Grech, President, Birkirkara St. Joseph Sports Club.

With the introduction of a new look and feel new race routes have also been announced with the first race – 10miles, taking place in Siggiewi, 5km in Marsascala and 21km in Bugibba. The choice of race routes was taken following IAAF international rules as well as taking into consideration of providing picturesque routes for the athletes to make the race more enjoyable to all.

More announcements about the race are expected to be made in the coming weeks. Athletes are encouraged to register for the Malta International Challenge Marathon and to sign up for the newsletter which will give out first hand information and updates as they arise. Newsletter can be signed up through here.
