It’s been a month now since the biggest day on the Maltese athletics calendar – the day of the marathon and half marathon. For some, it’s been a month of anti-climax, but at Mellieha AC, the spirit of the day seems to carry on.  We are a club of runners, where running is our lifestyle […]

Finding back a love for running

  If there’s anything Maltese that gets the brunt of newcomers on our island, it’s the roads.  However Amine Zaghrouk found the Maltese roads as a means to go back to his teenage love of running, luckily enough for both through Mellieħa AC.  And on the 23rd day of February, the roads between Mdina and […]

Adrian Busuttil is a proof of the never too late to try something new mantra.  Running was surely not his thing in his childhood but he is now a devoted runner.  His past might have been spent spectating but he is now in the midst of things.  He grew up through the ranks of Mellieħa […]

The recurring dream

Posted by Mellieha AC 5th March 2014 0 Comment 1266 views

I remember speaking to Charmaine Mifsud some two years ago before her first marathon, and she told me that she is dreaming about it in the night, she is visualising herself running it during the day, and she is talking about it to everyone willing to listen to her. Since then, the marathon did not […]

The philosophy behind the club of Mellieħa AC is to treat running as something of joy, and at the same time promote a healthier lifestyle.  However, having fun does not mean that things are not done the right way.  Joelle Azzopardi is an epitome of this, as she went through all stages with the club […]

Rita, you were nowhere to be seen last year.  Did you have a break from running or was it just from racing? Last year I had to spend time studying since I was doing a University course, and thus I had to put training aside.  However, although I didn’t race, I never stopped running as […]

Dehydration, falls, rising up, podium – all in one marathon

Posted by Mellieha AC 27th February 2014 1 Comment 6969 views

It is said that the person who starts a marathon is not the same person who finishes the marathon.  The marathon itself also develops in different forms one kilometre from another.  And the drama it sometimes decides to offer reminds me of the climate change that some scientists are telling us about.  One day or […]

The Mellieha AC Ladies impressed, both on the marathon and the half-marathon event. On the distance that was allowed for women in the Olympics for the first time only since 1984 due to being deemed too taxing on a woman’s health, the team of Mellieha AC placed second. Liza Schembri was one of the thirteen […]
