The annual Jerusalem Marathon is one of Israel’s largest marathons and is a challenge of physical endurance for the participants.  Not only will you work off a few thousand calories, you’ll also enjoy the spectacular route with views of the Knesset, Mahaneh Yehuda Market, Mt. Scopus, the Old City, David’s Tower and more.

There are several tracks; an 800m community race, a 1.7 km family race, a 5km race, a half marathon – 21.1km and a full marathon – 42.2km

The race attracts some 30,000 participants including novices and elite runners from abroad.

Support a cause

The Jerusalem Marathon encourages participants to run for a cause.  This year 17 NGOs are participating including Melabev, The Lone Soldier Center and Kav L’Noar.  There are other opportunities too. (Volunteer opportunities)

The Anglo-List stands behind The Talia Trust for Children which raises funds to support remedial teaching projects in Jerusalem, Haifa, Tirat HaCarmel and Kiryat Shmona. The Trust’s main aim is to ensure that all children who have specific learning difficulties will receive the educational tools they need to succeed, despite their families’ socio-economic level (which includes funding for the ‘ivchun’ – Israel psycho-didactic educational assessment)

The Talia Trust for Children has a team of runners participating again this year. The Talia Trust was founded by Haifa Olim, Marilyn & Maurice Hyman, in 2005 in memory of their 21 year old daughter, Talia, who was tragically killed in a road accident on her way to college,
