Israel's capital plays host to the Seventh Annual Jerusalem Marathon on Friday morning, March 17, 2017. This year, for the first time, the Malki Foundation is entering our own official Jerusalem Marathon team.
And we would love to include you! This can happen in one or both of two distinctive ways.
- You might be willing to join our team and run. Or walk.
- Or you could consider sponsoring a runner or a walker who will be taking part as a member of the authorized, official inaugural Malki Foundation Jerusalem Marathon running/walking crew.
Whether we're talking of the full marathon, the half marathon, the 5 km race or the 1.7 km family race (see all the details here), a fun day is guaranteed. Depending on which option you choose, the course begins at Israel's parliament, passes through Mount Scopus and the Old City, and finishes at Sacher Park. It's a spectacular route that challenges participants while exposing them to magnificent vistas and Jerusalem's unique atmosphere, culture and people.
The March date generally ensures comfortable weather, low humidity and an enthusiastic crowd of spectators.
And did we mention that you will be part of a team supporting children with severe disabilities in Israel, and their families?
