Besides that Valletta is beautiful and is worth a day just visiting the sights in the Old town and also the town of Medina, of Game of Thrones fame.
For Saturday Sprint and Experience races you can stay anywhere on Malta as the race area is within a 1-hour drive from almost anywhere on the island.
For the Sunday World Series race you need to be at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Golden Sands no later than 17:00 on Saturday for registration, the welcome drink and the MANDATORY race briefing. You should plan Saturday and Sunday evening either at the hotel or nearby. We will transport all racers to Valletta from the Radisson Blu Hotel for the Sunday morning start.
Weather on Malta
Like everywhere we can have wind, rain and un-seasonably cold weather, make sure you bring clothes to handle this.
The water in the Southern Mediterranean is salty, this has an advantage as you will have more flotation, and it also has a disadvantage and that is the possibility for chafing during the race. Make sure you prepare areas that rub so you enjoy both the beginning and the end of the race.
We will cover the ÖTILLÖ World Series Malta LIVE on otilloswimrun.com/live, please spread the information to all your friends and family. We will also use #otillomalta to tag our posts, please do so too. Our images that we post from the race are free to use for you as racers but not allowed for commercial use to promote other products or events.
