Valletta debuts on the international sport arena with Global Run Valletta
Elite athletes and runners have a new running course to add to their season, except that the newest being added to the international race circuit is set in the spectacular ambience of one of the world’s most historical cities.
Global Run Valletta (GRV) has been planned as an annual event, to become known among established city-branded races. With a race course that meanders around the 320 monuments of the UNESCO-listed City of Valletta, GRV 2016 is expected to be a high-quality sporting feature for both runners and spectators to enjoy. The race is the brainchild of Global Ports Holding – the majority shareholder in Valletta Cruise Port – who invests in communities and their quality of life as part of its social engagement commitment.
The runners hit the pavements of Valletta on Sunday, 30 October with the option of 10K run, a 5K run, or a 5K walk. The fee to enter the 10K run is €10, and €5 for the 5K run and the 5K walk. The entire money collected from registration fees will be all donated to a chosen charity.
For detailed entry information and registration, one can visit www.globalrunvalletta.com. The celebrations and fun activities related to the event will get underway a day earlier on Saturday, 29 October.
