The one and only CARNIVAL RUN on the Island will take place on Sunday 3rd March at 10.30am in Ghaxaq. Ghaxaq is well known for its traditional carnival and this race is the cherry on the cake for all Carnival and sports lovers.
The unique race is organized by Agones Sfc in collaboration with the Ghaxaq Local Council. There will be 3 events. A competitive 5km race, a 2.5km Fun Run/Walk and a 1km Kids Run.
