La Valette Marathon – New Year New You

The new year always brings a promise of hope and change, to tap into these possibilities requires commitment and dedication.

Running a Marathon or Half Marathon is a life-changing and far-reaching experience, empowering the runner way beyond what is the seemingly obvious advantages.

At CORSA we have five good reasons to take part in the Intersport La Valette Marathon on February 5.


This is a race designed by runners, for runners.

The Intersport La Valette Marathon has been created by Charlie Demanuele, Fabio Spiteri and Matthew Pace, who have a combined experience in sports of almost 85 years of running, cycling and swimming.

As individuals, they have put their body and their mind through some of the most grueling athletic events, pushing through weather conditions, injuries, distances, elevations, and doubts to reach their goal – that of being a better athlete today than they were yesterday.

This experience and passion is the driving force behind the La Valette Marathon; to create a race that pays close attention to the aspects that are important to runners.

The Intersport La Valette Marathon is Malta’s only internationally recognised marathon by the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMs).

This means the race is measured, registered and recognised by this international body and all the rules governing internationally recognised races applies to our race.

It also means that your finishing time at La Valette can help you qualify as an athlete for some of the biggest races in the world.


Taking part will change your life.

Taking part in a Marathon or Half Marathon is life-changing.

What happens on race day is only the final stage of the whole marathon experience.

Training for a race takes passion and commitment, but also a belief that you can achieve the goal.

Running a marathon requires you to continue to put one foot in front of another until you cross that finish line, and when you do cross that finish line you will feel more empowered to face other life challenges.

At CORSA we know this, and we do all that we can to make sure you have one of the most memorable races of your life.
