The breathtaking routes that have been chosen for the 2012 Marathon narrate the story of Jerusalem in the course of 3000 years of this city’s unique history – combining a challenge for the runners with splendid views and the typical culture of Jerusalem.

The date of the marathon has been selected to ensure both comfortable weather and a low level of humidity.

The International Jerusalem Marathon 2012 offers three distances:

•      The complete marathon – 42 km
•      The half marathon – 21 km
•      The 10 km marathon.

THE HINENI JERUSALEM MARATHON TOUR: 14th – 18th MARCH 2012 

This year the non-profit organization Hineni Jerusalem organizes a special tour around the 2nd International Jerusalem Marathon so that you can combine a run for a good cause with fun and unique programs in the Eternal Capital Jerusalem.

During this tour you will discover and experience Israel from within. At the same we will help you prepare for the 2nd Jerusalem Marathon, which will take you through Jerusalem with its many historical and holy sites.

For every kilometer you run, we encourage you to ask people to sponsor you for the benefit of Hineni Jerusalem’s many social welfare and educational programs.  

People who would like to participate in only specific parts of the program should contact Marnix van Ede at the Hineni Jerusalem office.

During the afternoon there is a special excursion through Jerusalem’s Old City with its history that stretches back more than 3,000 years. At the crossroad of three continents, Jerusalem has been one of the most controversial cities in human history. Within its walls, we will experience each of the four vaguely defined quarters: Christian, Armenian, Jewish and Muslim.

At the end of the afternoon people have time to prepare and train for the marathon. During the evening all marathon runners will enjoy a free, delicious pasta meal, visit the ‘Sport & Health Expo’, receive the runners’ kit, and meet all the other runners from around the world at the Convention Center. After that everybody needs a good night of sleep.

Then it is time to relax and prepare for the Shabbat.

For people who still have energy, we will welcome Shabbat at the Western Wall, the most sacred Jewish site in Jerusalem. There you will receive an explanation of who is there, and what their customs are. Back in the hotel we will have a traditional Shabbat meal together with participants of Hineni’s many social welfare programs.
