After long preparations, it is now time for the final tunings for the flagship event of the club – the Shoppers Discount Supermarket Mellieħa AC Road Races on Sunday 4 May.

The main race will undoubtedly be the 10km race that will start in front of Shoppers at Main Street, Mellieħa.  The gun is set to signal the start of this race at 8:30am.

Half an hour earlier, we will also have the start for the 10km Walk.  The club welcomes anyone who might have started running only lately and might be intimidated by a whole 10km of running for this event, and would like to alternate walking and running through the route with other athletes.  This can be the first step for many other races in future.

The route has a challenging element due to the hills that the town of Mellieħa offer, however the scenic landscapes and the friendly atmosphere will more than make up for it.

At 10:00am a 2km and 1km fun run will also take place.  These are for kids and teenagers up till 17 years of age.  Parents are also free to run with their kids.

Those who have not yet registered can do so on Saturday, 3rd May at Eurosport, Psaila Street, Birkirkara between 0900 and 1300hours.  A form can be downloaded here or you can apply online.

Those who have already registered are also asked to call at the same sports establishment to pick up their numbers and souvenir t-shirt.

We trust that your personal preparation for this race has gone well and are set to break your course best and enjoy every metre of the 10 kilometre.

Refreshments and fresh fruit will be waiting for you at the finishing line.
