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.

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.
