Pop the date in your diaries: the first ever Żejt iż-Żejtun Marathon will take place on September 18th 2016. This exciting running competition unfolds across the olive grove territories of the southern area of Malta. To meet all needs and requirements the marathon will offer several routes of different length and difficulty.
The village of Żejtun – whose name comes from “zebbug”, the Semitic word for “olives” – was a main olive oil production centre for centuries. Today this tradition is experiencing a revival with a number of olive groves being set up in Zejtun and the surrounding hamlets and other villages. Visit the Żejtun region in September, when the Olive Oil festival takes place, for a chance to enjoy the best in Maltese cuisine and meet the Green King of the Mediterranean Diet.
The Żejt iż-Żejtun Marathon features three different routes, a Children Fun Run (650 m), a Fun Run (2,9 km) and an Half Marathon (3 loops of 7.035 km)
