Marathon and Half Marathon heats

Start and entry into the corral

The Marathon and the Half Marathon will be started together at exactly 7:30.

The start corral is shared by both heats, and entry to the corral will be according to target time (running pace) each runner registered with. Target time is determined by analyzing information from runners and previous ability.

Runner’s bibs will include a letter indicating the relevant corral, and relevant pacers will be waiting at the entrance to each corral.

Entrance will be allowed only to the correct and relevant corral.

If there two or more runners with different target times who wish to run together, they will have to enter the relevant corral according to their letter, and meet up on the way, only after the start.

We appreciate your cooperation so the race will be well organized, flowing and fun for everyone!

Guidelines for the route

To enable easy and efficient passage for all runners in all heats and levels, we have introduced a number of separate routings along the track:

  • After the start you will pass Guy Beach, and from begins the route separation. Runners should keep to the left lane, on the side closer to the Sea of ​​Galilee, which is the shortest route as measured by a qualified international AIMS surveyor.
  • Runners may also run in the right lane to Bernicki Beach station, but note that the road will be separated by barriers and you will not be able to cross into the right lane anywhere you wish.
  • After the Bernicki Beach station, the lanes will be separated by cones. Please stick to the left, because we want to leave the right lane free for the returning fast runners, therefore running in the right lane will lead to disqualification.
  • Before Kinneret Square the lanes will be separated by barriers and the running will be possible only in the left lane (closer to the Kinneret).
  • About 200 meters before the U-turn (inflatable gate, near Tzemach Square) Marathon runners should stick to the left (and then continue straight ahead to Ma’agan junction) while the Half Marathon runners should stick to the right edge of the left lane because this is where they turn and begin the run back.
  • The finish gate will separate for the 10 km + full Marathon runners (the side closer to the Kinneret), and Half Marathon runners (the left side)
  • Half Marathon runners must stick to the left to allow a free lane for the Marathon runners returning to the finish line.
  • Marathon runners will stick to the right lane after Ma’agan junction, make a U-turn at Ein Gev, and stick to the right for the run back.

  • At the 5k mark (near Bernicki Beach station) runners should stick to the middle lane till they perform a U-turn, and then run back to the finish line in the left lane.
  • On the run back, near Bernicki Beach, runners will run on the Kinneret Loop path, and stay on that path till Shikmim Circle. From there on, running is allowed only in the right lane, closer to the Kinneret.

Medical Guidelines

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. Nevertheless, 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 previously. 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 way and move on, do not 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.
