Eilat, Israel’s premier resort on the Red Sea, is more than just a vacation resort; it is a serious sporting destination for athletes. Participants in the event can choose between a full marathon (42.1k), a half marathon (21k), a 10k course and a 5k course.

The race starts at the Sun Bay, the Herod Hotel Promenade, and takes runners up along Roded creek and past the remains of an ancient gold mine in the Tuchin valley, then continues upwards towardsMthe Shechoret mountain, with Y its truly breathtaking scenery.
