Jerusalem Marathon 2019 Why not take part in this special challenge and wave at our hospital team as you pass by Shaare Zedek on the race course? The event will include several tracks – marathon (42.2 km), half-marathon (21.1 km), 10 km race, 5 km race, family 1.7km race and an 800 m community race. This is one of Israel's largest marathons, with 30,000 participants of which hundreds are elite runners and runners from abroad. The various tracks pass by fascinating historical sites that illuminate 3,000 years of the history of Jerusalem, Israel's capital. The International Jerusalem Winner Marathon combines physical endurance with exquisite landscapes, fresh mountain air and unique culture and heritage sites such as the Israeli Knesset, Machane Yehuda Marketplace, Mount Scopus, the Old City, David's Tower, Haas Promenade and more. It is guaranteed to be a challenging, thrilling and unforgettable experience for all runners. By joining team Shaare Zedek you can set yourself a personal challenge and raise money for a potentially life-saving project. You will be able to choose a project close to your heart from the departments who most need your support and our team will help you get your fundraising going with a personalised fundraising page on our website (saving the expensive costs of third party sites like just giving). We are here to offer fundraising advice and support and will be happy to spread the word about your fundraising on our social media pages. For all runners we will organise a special tour of the hospital for you to meet the wonderful doctors and nurses you are helping and the facilities your fundraising will support.
