Dead Sea Marathon Israel

Organiser's Description

Running on the water at the lowest point on earth.

The highlight of the race is a run towards the sea on the border embankment of the Dead Sea Works that surrounds the southern part of the Dead Sea. Only once a year do the security forces permit use of the dikes for sporting purposes and this gives the runners the opportunity to discover breathtaking views that have so far been observed by employees of the Dead Sea factories or security personnel.

The dike serves as the border area between the Israeli Dead Sea and the Jordanian Dead Sea and serves as a barrier without a fence between the two countries that maintain a common and peaceful daily routine. The route mostly takes place on a dense and flat graveled area and will be secured by the security forces and the army.

NOTE - event re-scheduled from 2021 date - see below.

Unfortunately, the limitations of the current crisis have not been lifted and the optimism that has kept our activities alive, concedes to the concern for the safety of the participants and the need to comply with the temporary regulations.

Therefore, a decision was made by the Tamar Regional Council and Forum Productions to postpone the Dead Sea Marathon until the following year, on 4/2/2022.

All the participants will be able to choose to get their money back, or alternatively save their place and registration fee for the next Dead Sea Land Marathon.

We thank you for the support and vote of confidence that has encouraged and given us great incentive over the past few months.

Sincerely, Tamar Regional Council and Forum Production
