The Women in Sport Commission of the Maltese Olympic Committee, will once again be celebrating International Women’s Day by organizing the Women’s Day Fun Run and Walk for the 2nd consecutive year, which is being sponsored by CYMALON.

The aim for this event is to encourage more women and girls in particular to exercise in a fun way. Regular physical activity has been declared to be an essential component for a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Lucienne Attard, an Executive Director of the MOC, who chairs the Women in Sport Commission, firmly believes that sport can be fun and not just hard work. “Exercise is crucial for everyone’s health, which is why we chose an easy run/walk to celebrate Women’s Day in the hope that it will be the start of a lifelong habit for many women and girls”.

The CYMALON Run/Walk is open for everyone regardless of gender or age. So make it a family outing and join us for this fun event on Sunday 6th March at at Marsaskala Bay (opposite the playground). Registration opens at 8.30am and the run will start at 9am and the walk at 9.30am. An aerobics session will precede each event with lively music to get everybody warmed up and ready to go. The 5K route will pass along the Marsaskala Bay Promenade with a turning point near the Jerma Palace Hotel, returning along the same route with a second turn around near the finish line for a 2nd lap, to finish at the start-line.

A Health Exhibition area will be set up near Summer Nights restaurant with sponsor stands, who will give out advice on health issues. This will include the main sponsor, CYMALON, which is a first-line remedy for cystitis. Participants and visitors are encouraged to visit these stands to ask questions and get advice.

There is no registration fee and all participants will be given a commemorative T shirt of the event, which should be worn for the run and walk. Water will be provided. There will be a lively atmosphere with music and face painting.
