 Spring Season – Avg. ___

One of the first runs recorded in human history—long before the “marathon” told of in Greek mythology—is mentioned in the Bible, in the beginning of the book of Samuel. The runner’s mission is to inform Eli, the priest of Israel, of the defeat in the war, the death of his sons and the capture of the Ark of the Covenant.

Many centuries later, the founder of the Maccabiah games, Yosef Yekutieli, set out to measure the length of the course. He was amazed to find that the length of this historic path precisely matched that of the modern marathon – 42 kilometers!

It is in this unique atmosphere that the first marathon in history has been renewed, in an athletic event that includes hundreds of runners worldwide. 

The race is set to begin in the modern-day city of Rosh Haayin, site of the ancient Eben-Ezer and now home to some 40,000 people. It will continue along Israel’s Highway 5 towards the city of Ariel and continues on, culminating in a huge, exciting EXPO event among the ruins and mosaics of ancient Shiloh.
