Guidelines

Start and entry to the corral
The marathon and half-marathon will start together at exactly 7:30 am.
Both distances share the corral and entry will be at target time (running pace) for both the marathon and the half-marathon.
The target time is determined according to analysis of information from the runners and previous ability.
A character indicating the relevant corral will be printed on the bib. Pacers will wait in the entrance to every corral.
Entrance will only be allowed to the appropriate corral!
In case runners with different target time wish to start running together they would have to enter the appropriate corral by their bib and only meet after the race start.
We kindly ask for your assistance and cooperation so that everyone can have a fun, flowing and high-quality race!
Instructions for the course:
In order to allow free, open and efficient passage for all runners of all distances and levels, the course includes several routing points:
• After 1.1km you will pass Guy Beach where the lanes will separate. When running, stick to the left-hand lane on the side closer to the Sea of ​​Galilee (the Kinerret). This is the shortest route as measured by an internationally qualified AIMS measurer.
• You can also use the right-hand lane until the Berniki station, but note the road will be separated with barriers so you will not always be able to switch to the right-hand lane.
• After the Berniki station the lanes will be separated with traffic cones. You must stick to the left. Running in the right-hand lane will lead to disqualification. The road should remain open for the returning runners.
• Before the Kinerret Roundabout, the lanes will once again be separate with barriers and you may only run on the left-hand side (closer to the Sea of ​​Galilee).
• About 200 meters before the U turn (before the Tzemach Roundabout), the marathon runners should stick to the left, while the half-marathon runners should stick to the rim of the right-hand lane.
• The U turn will be marked with an inflatable arch. You will turn from left to right, so the half-marathon runners must stick to the right-hand rim of the left-hand lane.
• The marathon runners continue straight towards Ma’agan Intersection.
• The half-marathon runners turn and return on the left-hand lane (farthest from the Sea of ​​Galilee) all the way back to the finish line.
• The finish line gate is separated for 10K + marathon (on the side closer to the Sea of ​​Galilee) and half-marathon (on the side farthest from the Sea of ​​Galilee).
• The half-marathon runners must stick to the left so that the returning marathon runners have free passage to the finish line.
• The marathon runners will stick to the right-hand lane after Ma’agan Intersection, make a U turn in Ein Gev, and once more stick to the right-hand side *

Start and entry to the corral:

The 10K race will start at exactly 7:50 am.

We kindly ask for your assistance and cooperation so that everyone can have a fun, flowing and high-quality race!

The course:

  • After 1.1km you will pass Guy Beach and the lanes will separate there. Stick to the left-hand lane in the side closer to the Sea of ​​Galilee (Kinerret).
  • You can also use the right-hand lane until the Shikmim station, but note the road will be separated with barriers so you will not always be able to switch to the right-hand lane.
  • After the Shikmim station, all runners must stick to the left-hand lane (closer to the Sea of ​​Galilee).
  • When approaching the return point towards the U turn (next to the Berniki Beach), the runners will enter the middle lane until the U turn point, where they will stick to the left-hand lane (closer to the Sea of ​​Galilee) .
  • On the return, at the entrance to Berniki Beach the runners will decent to the road circling the Sea of ​​Galilee and will run there until exiting in Shikmim Roundabout.
  • From that point on, running will continue only on the right-hand lane close to the Sea of ​​Galilee.
  • Finish in the finish line gate closer to the Sea of ​​Galilee.

Medical permits

Following the court ruling on 12.2015, no medical permits are required for the race, but runners are asked to sign a health statement during registration. However, if a participant gives a positive answer to one of the medical questions, he / she must submit a medical permit to run. Medical permits must be uploaded to the registration website. A participant who does not upload a medical permit up to 48 hours prior to the event will not be able to receive a runner’s kit and will not be able to participate in the race. The participant’s kit will only be delivered after the medical permit has been provided and the participant will have no claim in connection with the producer’s refusal to issue the participant’s kit and allow him / her to participate in the race

Health and safety

It is known that participating in a marathon or a shorter race requires good health and physical fitness. It is well known that, despite all the preparations, some runners might find themselves in distress during the run, so we ask you for attention and commitment to the instructions set out for your safety and benefit. The instructions herein do not replace a supervised training program led by a qualified coach and sports and health professionals.

1. It is advisable to check with your family doctor before starting training. The check-up should also include a periodic physical fitness (ergonomic) test.

2. In the event of an injury or illness, each day that is “lost” requires at least two days of rehab training and a return to the level and pace of the workout you were in before. If you suffer from illness accompanied by fever or upset stomach or diarrhea in the days before the race – do not participate in the race! A physician and trainer should be consulted about scheduling a return to the running program.

3. Read and study the topic of heat stroke prevention and get used to drinking regimen.

4. Give some thought to nutrition, sleep and race preparation. At the race itself there are several hydration stations along the way which also (sometimes) include nutritional enrichment – use them, have a drink, take an energy supplement for the road and move on, don’t miss any hydration station.

5. Prepare your personal running gear and make sure it is comfortable for you and suitable for a long run.

6. Be sure to wear a hat; sunglasses are an option.

The Tiberias “Winner” Marathon continues its 5-year tradition in which Marathon Israel teamed with GARMIN sponsorship together with “Hapoel”, the “Run with Lawrence” and “Adrenaline” running clubs to find the best pacers for the Tiberias Marathon.
