Being held during the 50th Anniversary of the re-unification of Jerusalem, the Jerusalem Marathon is spectacular, and is one which challenges the runners while exposing them to magnificent views and Jerusalem’s unique culture. The marathon courses were especially selected to recount Jerusalem’s 3000-year historical narrative since the beginning of its existence. The runners will experience comfortable weather and a low level of humidity at this time of year. An expected 30,000 participants will compete (or run for fun) in either the full (42.2km) or half (21.1km) marathons, 10k and 5km runs, a 1.7km family race and an 800 m community race. Between them they will be supporting 17 different Israeli charities.
There will be many road closures from Thursday night until the conclusion of the race on Friday – for details CLICK HERE
