TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

Starting from the amazing Dingli cliffs you can admire the vastness of the Mediterranean sea and the tiny island of Filfla, which was used for target practice by the British soldiers stationed here during World War 2. We will then run inland and past the ‘Buskett’ gardens which were built by the knights of St John to use as hunting grounds. Overlooking the gardens you’ll be able to see the imposing Verdala castle which was the Grandmasters’ residence.

Next stop is the Medieval city of Mdina which was the capital city before Valletta. Here you can admire the fortifications, Cathedral, alleys and fantastic views from the top. Exiting the beautiful main gate, we then run through the narrow streets of Rabat and admire the Parish Church of St Paul. Underneath lies a grotto (cave) where St Paul lived for 3 months and in which time we were given our Christian religion. Our run continues past the St Paul’s and St Agatha’s catacombs before running through the countryside, past the small village of Dingli and back to the cliffs where you can cool down whilst enjoying the fantastic views!

Note: Including transport, this tour is estimated to last 2 hours and 45 mins

  • DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
    No we do not cancel our tours if it rains, storm etc. It is very rare that conditions are so bad, that we have to cancel, so if you are in doubt - expect to run. 

    WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
    It is always a good idea to check the weather conditions before travelling to Malta, so that you know what temperatures to expect.  During the colder months we always recommend people to wear long sleeves as we have short stops along the run, in order to take photos and for the guide to talk about the attractions. 
    In summer you can easily just wear a t-shirt and a pair of shorts/tights. It is, however, very important to remember sunscreen (at least SPF 30/50), so that sun burn is avoided. A hat can also be very handy in summertime in general. 

    IS THERE WATER ON THE TOUR?
    There are a few public water fountains along the way, so if you are in need of a sip of water, simply ask the guide to point out a drinking spot.

    HOW FAST DO YOU RUN ON THE TOURS, DO I HAVE TO BE AN ELITE RUNNER TO PARTICIPATE?
    The running pace is set on our private tours by you.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO STORE BAGS AND CLOTHES AT THE PLACE WE START?
    Unfortunately, there is no storage for bags. Please travel light.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE PICTURES ALONG THE WAY?
    Yes, you can bring your camera/mobile phone and snap away. If there is a certain place you would like to take a picture, then simply ask your guide.

    DO YOU HAVE A HOTEL PICK-UP SERVICE?
    We offer our private tours hotel pick-up service.

    Please let us know your complete hotel or apartment address during the tour reservation process and we will check if we can meet you at your hotel/apartment or at the standard meeting point.

tip  BOOKING TIP:
BOOK EARLY - GIVE US SOME TIME
We recommend to book your running tour minimum 2-3 days before your preferred tour date. Especially during the different high seasons, when many guests like to join our runs.
That will give the guide/city manager enough time to arrange together with you the last tour details like the meeting point, start time and to organize a personal tour guide for your unique and fun running experience.
