Registration opens for 12th International Jerusalem ‘Winner’ Marathon, set for March 17

Tens of thousands of runners from all over Israel and around the world are expected to participate in the 12th International Jerusalem "Winner" Marathon which will be held on Friday, March 17, 2023.

The Jerusalem marathon course not only allows runners to take in the tremendous sights of the modern and old neighborhoods of the city but also tests their stamina with its steep inclines and hills. No wonder it is considered among the most beautiful and challenging marathon courses in the world.

The course includes Israel's parliament, the Knesset, the Supreme Court, the Israel Museum, the President's Residence, the walls of Jerusalem surrounding the Old City, the Armenian Quarter, the Tower of David, the Khan Theater and the Sultan's Pool. The race finishes in Sacher Park.

The Jerusalem marathon is a celebration for the city of Jerusalem, when tens of thousands of visitors visit the city and the local businesses during the marathon weekend, with businesses and hotels offering discounts, special travel packages, and more.

Sammy Yahia, Israel’s Director of Tourism to India and Philippines, said: “I am thrilled that everything is getting back to normal. We have been waiting for since the first wave of the pandemic brough the world to a standstill two years ago. We are confident that visitor numbers will gradually recover to pre-pandemic numbers as consumer confidence grows in line with the gradual easing of restrictions.  Our first, and most important priority is the safety and wellbeing of all those who wish to travel to Israel, and starting next week, I look forward to welcoming Indian runners to participate around the beautiful sites of Jerusalem.”
