IMG_0176 The 25th edition of the Nestle Fitness Malta International Challenge Marathon proved to be a weekend of sweat, smiles and great results for Mellieha AC`s athletes. The club fielded a large contingent of 50 athletes. These included 14 athletes who individually completed all three stages of the gruelling event, as well as 36 athletes who formed 12 teams fielded by Mellieha AC.

The three day individual event was dominated by Mellieha`s Andrew Grech who won all three stages and stormed to victory in a total time of 2:24:12. Andrew delivered an impressive performance over the weekend and crossed Sunday`s finish line only 9 seconds short of the race record set in 1993. Another accolade for Mellieha AC goes to athlete George Spiteri, who has participated in all 25 editions of the Malta Challenge Marathon.

Mellieha AC relay teams also registered outstanding performances with 7 teams finishing in the top 10 of the relay table. MAC XAKRIVA (composed of Charlot Bartolo/Mark Mifsud/Julian Borg) took 2nd place. Mellieha AC also placed 3rd in the overall Full Challenge team placing (team made up of Andrew Grech/Manfred Borda/Mario Agius/Tonio Farrugia).

Yet again Mellieha AC’s proved to be a force to be reckoned with in terms of performance. Mellieha AC offers a high but achievable level of training and coaching through its Training Programme managed by Club Head Coach Has Kesra.
