THE BIGGEST TRAIL RUNNING EVENT IS BACK!

The TORQ5K is traditionally the biggest trail running race on the island and is a five-km cross country/trail race organised by local club Agones SFC.

Athletes taking part will run one loop of 5 kilometres around the scenic outskirts of Gudja. Participants can run or walk the route and a 1 kilometre run for kids will also be held on the day.

“Trail Running is in the Club’s DNA and trademark. Agones has been the pioneer of trail running Malta, bringing hundreds of athletes closer to nature and to some undiscovered territory in Malta.

The Trail Running Races have been a major success so much so that this race has now been endorsed by the Malta Amateur Athletics Association, the governing body of athletics in Malta” explained Warren Muscat, President Agones SFC.

Although classified as a trail run, the chosen route offers runners more of local country lanes, with low rubble walls and a historic chapel en route.

Registration can be effected online at www.agones-sfc.eu/events. Prizes will be awarded to the first three Male and Female athletes and to the winning Male and Female Teams.

Presentation will take place at the Agones SFC annual presentation night on 2nd November.
