Israel Marathon 2019 Event, Which Inspires You?

Since Israel is home to the Holy Land for many religions, it is fitting that the Bible Marathon might be your choice. It is held in Rosh Haayin every year. It is one of the very first recorded runs in human history and ran well before the first marathon took shape. It is mentioned in the Bible long before the word "marathon" appeared in Greek Mythology. So for a once in a lifetime religious experience, the Bible Marathon is a sure fit!

For the marathoner looking not just for a marathon, but the additional challenge of desert running, the Desert Marathon will not disappoint. The race begins in the desert and then follows the most obscure path ending on the Red Sea Shore. Not only do you get a glimpse of the beautiful shoreline, the entire route is filled with breathtaking views!

If Tel Aviv is your destination, the Tel Aviv Marathon is a great fast and flat course! Race around this historic city alongside other destination runners who, likewise, came to see all that Israel has to offer! Whatever it is that inspires you to run a marathon this year, you will find it running one of the many Israel Marathon 2019 events!
