Has it been your dream to visit the Holy Land? Now is your opportunity to join Marathon Tours & Travel for its second tour to Israel for the ninth 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 a seven-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 the pre-race option to spend two days in Galilee and northern Israel as well as a post-race excursion to Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985 and one of the New 7 Wonders of the World since 2007. This is an experience that will leave lasting memories!
The marathon- it was absolutely tough, but the views and post-race party made it completely worth it. I don't know that I would ever do that race again, but I would highly recommend it! Going to the Dead Sea the day after was timed just right. That is the ultimate epsom salt recovery soak.
The Holy Land...a trip to the Holy Land. Also, I've been on tours with both Jacqui and Karen, so when I saw they were the tour leaders, I didn't hesitate to sign up.
