GOZO HALF MARATHON

Claire Chamberlain travelled to the Island of Joy to take part in the longest- running Maltese road race and discovered there’s more to this Mediterranean jewel than meets the eye…
Be inspired by reports on recent races by our intrepid runners: we go the distance!

Situated 93km south of Sicily and forming part of the Maltese archipelago, Gozo (which translates as ‘joy’ in Castilian) is a tiny haven of tranquility. Despite being a mere 20-minute ferry ride from its big sister, Malta, it feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle, and at just 67km², it’s small but beautifully formed. But, as we were to discover, despite its relaxed air and peaceful Mediterranean charm, Gozo harbours a more adventurous side, too.

About Women’s Running

Sometimes a new bit of shiny kit is the one thing that motivates us to head outdoors and do that mid-week run. Sometimes, however, that new bit of shiny kit stays firmly in the drawer. It was cheap, it doesn’t fit that well, it was an impulse buy – our excuses are endless. But there is no excuse. The climate emergency is well and truly upon us, and it is up to us to start making a real difference, and one big way we can do that is by holding off on buying more kit that we don’t need, or buying kit that makes a positive difference. This issue, we reflect on the impact our sport has on the environment and how we can all make a difference. Elsewhere, we’re talking trails: our resident trail runner Damian Hall explains just what’s so great about leaving the tarmac behind – and how it can prevent that niggling injury from ever returning. We also explore how Reiki can transform your running, how to feed the runners in your family as well as the ankle-biters, and we interview Marina – who cheerfully "beat a bunch of blokes” in the Wadi Rum Ultra, when she coasted in third overall.
