Has it been your dream to visit the Holy Land? Now is your opportunity to join Marathon Tours & Travel for its third tour to Israel for the tenth International Jerusalem Winner Marathon! As one of Israel's largest marathons, more than 30,000 participants are expected between all the events.
In addition to the physical aspects, the marathon course will take you through exquisite landscapes and heritage sites such as the Israeli Knesset, Yehuda Marketplace, Mount Scopus, the Old City, David's Tower, Haas Promenade and much more. It is guaranteed to be a challenging, thrilling and unforgettable experience for all runners. If the marathon is not for you, they also offer a half-marathon, 10K and 5K!
We are offering an eight-night package that will introduce you to Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem, with a day excursion to Masada and the Dead Sea. Your English-speaking guide will bring the past to life and show you the present times as you wander through both the Holy City and the "Sin City". Additionally, you can choose one of two post-race options 1) Two days in Galilee and northern Israel or 2) three nights in Jordan where you will visit Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985 and one of the New 7 Wonders of the World since 2007.
We look forward to hosting you in Israel in 2020!
