About this Event

Palestine Marathon

Join TeamMC Running Club as we hit the roads and pavements of Palestine. Taking place on the 24th March 2020 this is your opportunity to run alongside local and international runners in aid of educational projects in Palestine.

The Marathon caters for all levels of runners which also includes shorter runs for those that are keen or just getting started.

You can choose from the following;

  • Full Marathon – 42km
  • Half Marathon – 21km
  • 10km
  • 5km

The Tour

The 5 day tour will include visiting the holy and majestic site of Al-Aqsa as well as other historical locations in Jerusalem and Bethlehem. The tour will be fully escorted with an opportunity during the evenings for free time to explore the ancient sounds and sights on your own.

We will also visit the educational projects that you have fundraised towards to enable you to meet the wonderful children you are supporting as well as a chance to report back from the field.

The Run

The route will start from the iconic Church of the Nativity and will take you through the varied landscape of Palestinian life.

Runners will pace down the old city of Bethlehem running through Al Aida and Ad Dheisheh refugee camp following the infamous grey wall now emblazed with graffiti from artist around the world.

The course will be marked along the way with water stations and toilets and you will be accompanied by Muslim Charity running club members who will be available for advice and guidance all along the way.

This event is designed so anyone can take part. But choose a distance that is most suitable to your fitness level and remember you will always need to train and prepare before any such event.
