Join Arad Masada Half Marathon

Arad Masada Race – 20 hours of thrills, which begins long before the starting line and ends long after the finish. This year the race has undergone a facelift and offers a completely new single-track for those who choose the 17 km route!

The event begins towards sunset on Thursday in “Kfar Hanokdim”. In the heart of the valley between Arad and Masada, a one-time “running village” has been created that welcomes runners in a unique desert atmosphere. Here you can choose a place to leave your gear in large tents, eat a desert dinner, listen to a lecture on cross-country running with tea and coffee, receive the race briefing and enjoy a performance by Si Hyman along with dancing. Just don’t forget to get some sleep or rest before the early wake-up call.

4:45 – Wake up straight into a celebration of music and running. After the lively start from Kfar Hanokdim you run into the silence of the desert, into a powerful experience connecting to nature, to yourself and your personal challenge.

There are 3 heats: 11km competitive (named after Omar Rubinovich, who grew up in Arad and was killed in Operation Cast Lead); 5km walk; and for the first time a spectacular 17km single-track!

When all the runners arrive at the finish line beneath Masada, the Arad-Masada “rave” begins. Enjoy the music and the desert that is waking up, at a dance party that ends this exhilarating race.

Course highlights
Leave Hanokdim Village on the road towards Masada. The beginning is relatively flat and after that we will start climbing with varying slopes. At the end of the climb you can enjoy the view of Har Kana’im (Mountain of the Zealots), as well as the first refreshment point (3rd kilometer). After a refreshment, you will enter the amazing single-track that descends in moderate twists towards the valley. The track runs close to the cliffs, so pay attention – it is important to be focused on the track and not just the amazing views. The descent gets more extreme after the view of the Dead Sea, where you will reach the famous Red Camel saddle. Stop for a quick picture and then continue the descent towards Nahal Kana’im. Here you will find a refreshment station at the 11-12km mark. After it you begin the ascent towards Masada, which is cleverly built like serpentines that will allow you to run, slowly but continuously. You can’t miss Masada that will await you proudly at the end of the ascent, together with the crazy party for a perfect ending.
