Tiberias is one of the four holy cities of Judaism, the burial place of venerated sages, and a very popular base for Christians visiting holy sites around the Sea of Galilee. It's also one of the most aesthetically challenged resort towns in Israel, its sunbaked lakeside strip marred by 1970s architectural monstrosities. So, not for the first time, the sacred and the kitsch – plus beaches and hot springs – coexist side by side in a whirl of holiness, hawkers and hedonism.
The course follows the shore line of the Sea of Galilee set against breathtaking rustic landscape, and winding through ancient historical landmarks in the Jordan Valley. It is an out and back course, from the main streets of Tiberias along the Sea of Galilee, crossing the Jordan River up to the turning point (approx. halfway) at Kibbutz Ein Gev and back to Tiberias.
