When: 4th Mach 2024
Registration is now open for the Jerusalem Marathon on 8 March 2024.
Combining the challenge of one of the world’s hilliest routes with the culture and beauty of the ancient city, this is a race that is quickly growing in popularity. Guiding runners along historic paths and roads, the event provides participants with a close-up of many fascinating religious sites whilst also offering breathtaking vistas of the stunning landscapes that surround the holy city. Given the unique setting of this event, it is clear why it attracts athletes from all corners of the globe.
The history attached to this glorious city of Jerusalem makes the event so much more than a gathering of runners – it is a celebration of the people, diversity and culture the city has always cherished. Therefore, it is no surprise[NB1] the organisers have ensured that entrants of all skill levels can take part in this running festival with five different races scheduled – full marathon, half marathon, 5k, family run and community run – providing challenges of varying difficulties for seasoned runners and beginners alike.
Those looking to combine their running exploits with an immersive experience of the city, tour operators like Shalom Tours are on hand to help travellers discover more of the city with tailored trips to many of Jerusalem’s famous spots.
