The Lisa Maria
Memorial Dingli 10




Dear Participants,

The unfolding scenario vis-a-vis the Covid-19 Corona Virus has compelled us to assess the situation and the potential ramifications should we go ahead with the LMM Dingli 10 event. After careful consideration and discussions with the relevant parties and after seeking the health authorities advice, we feel that the prevailing situation demands a prudent approach in the interest of all concerned. Regretfully, much against our wishes but for everyone’s safety, we have taken the painful decision to postpone the Lisa Maria Memorial Dingli 10 event scheduled for Thursday 19th March 2020. For this reason please note also that the race registration scheduled for Saturday 14th, is being cancelled as well.

Meanwhile we will be requesting the MAAA to appoint another date for the race, once the Health Authorities will give the all clear from the Covid-19 Corona virus.

Whilst we apologise for any inconvenience caused, we stress that this decision is being taken with the public’s and the participants’ best interests at heart and that this situation is beyond our control.

We thank you for your understanding.

The LMM Dingli 10 Organising Committee

Established as one of Malta’s most prestigious
annual races since 1991.

The Dingli 10 event this year celebrates its 30th anniversary. Held on the 19th March every year (being a public holiday in Malta), this prestigious event ranks as one of the top top races in Malta and includes a 10 Mile route and walkathon, a 10Km route and walk (being newly introduced this year) as well as a 2KM Fun Run for kids. The Dingli 10 offers something for both individuals as well as families alike.  The routes of the different events are each exciting in their own ways, offering very scenic views and meandering through some of Malta’s most verdant and exciting countryside rampant with breathtaking vistas whilst taking in the beautiful valleys and unfolding gradual hills and imposing Dingli cliff.

Start Meeting Place near the entrance of Gnien Il-Haddiem, Triq il-Maddalena, Dingli Few Meters away from meeting place, near Bus Stop Turretta. Finish Ġnien il-Ħaddiem, Triq il-Maddalena, Dingli.


The race will start near the cemetery (Bus Stop Turretta) and will finish near Gnien il-Haddiem in Triq il-Maddalena.

The route is a fairly tough and hilly loop. After an initial ‘flattish’ 1-mile loop around Savio College, runners proceed towards the Nigret area in Rabat. The course goes down to Fiddien valley (the 4 mile mark), and this is where the hills start. For three miles, runners follow various country roads, mostly going uphill, with occasional flat respites. The eighth and ninth miles start with a short and steep hill, followed by a downhill stretch towards the spectacular Dingli Cliffs, and further rises and falls along the Cliffs’ panoramic road, which sap the energy reserves of all but the very toughest!

The final mile is a fast dash back towards the Dingli village centre, finally downhill, for a well-deserved welcome applause from the spectators and a nice commemorative medal.
