We have successfully done the marathon for three years in a row, without any accidents. Remember to drink lots of water before, during and after the race, and follow the instructions given by the volunteers and the Palestinian police.
As a big city sports event we take our athletes and spectators security very seriously. The race is held in Palestinian Area A, which is under full control of the Palestinian Authorities, and comprises Palestinian towns, and some rural areas. Palestinian police is handling road safety on race day. The street has been shut down and there will be no traffic during the race.
The Palestinian Red Crescent is in charge of all medical issues – meaning that you couldn’t be in better hands. There will be a mobile clinic at the start/finish area – and ambulances along the route.
Make sure to write your name, contact details of a local contact person in case of an emergency, as well as relevant medical history on the back of your start number. This will provide medical staff with important information in the event that you need medical attention.
