LRC Mdina Glass 10K – 25th Anniversary Race

Ladies Running Club celebrated the 25th Anniversary of its namesake race on Sunday 11th October 2015.

Ladies have come a long way in quarter of a century! Local running scene has changed tremendously from the conception of the 6 mile race which LRC organised back in the day in order to have a race where women could participate. This year’s edition was proud to achieve a new record in number of race registrations: 507, and highest proportion (50%) of women participating in a local race.

High winds presented an additional challenge to participants and the traditional doughnuts served at the finish line were all the more well deserved and eagerly enjoyed.
