The Vodafone Malta Marathon has been yet another day to remember, especially to those eight lucky winners who had won a training programme in preperation for the half marathon back in November. Malta was painted RED for the day and the atmosphere at the Sliema Ferries finish line was electric. All participants were out in force, at the starting line, along the route and most of all at the finish line.
“Crossing the finish line in one piece was one of the best moments of my life,” smiled MarieClaire Cremona, one of the participants who finished the half marathon. “I have never felt so much happiness and relief in all my life and I will treasure that moment forever. I would like to thank Vodafone for giving me the opportunity to be guided by such a professional team. My dream has finally come true!”
“The Vodafone Malta Marathon is yet another testimony of what a great company we work for,” said Sandro Pisani, Head of Marketing at Vodafone, who also ran the half marathon. “It is moments like these that makes us feel proud that we are part of Vodafone and I would like to thank all the persons that were involved in making the event such a success. Getting to the finish line and celebrating our success of the first Vodafone Malta Marathon together with family and friends and other employees made the pain fade away and all the experience worthwhile.”
Back in November, Vodafone teamed up with a group of professionals and participants were trained by a number of trainers from Kinetika Fitness Centre, guided by sports nutritionist Joe Sciberras of NutriSlim, health Psychologist Dr. Elaine Dutton and geared up with the required clothing by Urban Jungle. San Michel and Powerade also provided drinks to each participant. This year, the Vodafone Malta Marathon saw a record number of participants, with over 3,600 walking, jogging and running the route whilst chasing and achieving their dream!
