Dead Sea Marathon Israel

Be'er Sheva

Ein Bokek beach, Israel

Fri 3rd February 2023

Starting at 06:15

5 races

£43.00 - £91.00

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.

running into the sea

The highlight of the race is a run towards the center of 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 embankment serves as the border area between the Israeli Dead Sea and the Jordanian Dead Sea and passes as a fence without a barrier between the countries, which maintains a common and peaceful daily routine between the two sides. The route is mostly on a compacted and flat fine gravel area. The event will be secured by security forces – police and army.

The new Ein Bokek promenade
The beating heart of the event is located on the shores of the Dead Sea, on the new promenade of the hotel complex (Ein Bokek), from where the runners will cross the start line and where they will return to the glorious finish and a fun for all event. The prize giving complex will include an expo – a professional fair with the best sports and lifestyle companies, the running kit distribution area, a recovery area for runners and activities for the whole family.

Ein Gedi Race
The Dead Sea Land Marathon has developed from the foundations of the old Ein Gedi Race, which for over 30 years hosted tens of thousands of runners. The Ein Gedi race was an anchor point in the annual race schedule of amateurs and professionals from all over the country who were addicted to the magical and quiet landscape. As a continuation of the commemoration to that race, at the end of the half marathon, an event will be held in memory of Tomer and Giora Ron, young members of Kibbutz Ein Gedi.
