Dead Sea Marathon – Israel

Loading Events

Witness the beautiful dead sea as you run across Israel’s beautiful beach.

The highlight of this running experience is the course that leads through the dikes at the Dead Sea Works plant and well into the southern Dead Sea basin. Reflecting a peaceful daily routine, the central dike marks the Israeli-Jordanian border with no fence. Runners are given a unique opportunity to enter this usually restricted access area and enjoy rarely seen breathtaking views.

The relatively flat surface of mainly compressed kurkar ensures high speed and best performance.

List of Heats:

10K Run – running along the new Dead Sea promenade, in memory of Tomer and Giora Ron.
21.1K Half Marathon – a fast and flat course across the dikes in the southern Dead Sea basin
42K Marathon – a fast course around Dead Sea’s southern shore and 21Km on the central dike
50K Ultramarathon – the official competition in Israel

Prize money will be awarded to the winners in the general category of each race.
