TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

This 8km running tour is packed with history, religion and modern life of Jerusalem. Beginning our tour at the city hall, runners will hear about the famous history of Jerusalem 4000 years old, which is holy for all religions. From there the running tour continues through Jaffa Gate, the famous entrance gate to Jerusalem. Runners will hear about the walls, the famous periods of Jerusalem and the people who walked through in the past.

Behold the glorious Tower of David, part of the fortress built in the second century BC to protect the city. Runners continue through the Armenian Quarter, the smallest of the four quarters of the Old City, and recall Jesus' final journey down Via Dolorosa located just a few hundred meters to the left. The running tour then continues alongside the Jewish Quarter for a glimpse of the Western Wall, the holiest site for the Jewish nation and remnant of the Second Temple. Running through the ancient archeological City of David, we then continue towards Sultan's Pool, built over 500 years ago.

But Jerusalem is not only the Old City and lots of history. Modern Jerusalem is vibrant, exciting and unforgettable. A city that speaks to both your spiritual and wild side hand in hand. Walk the lively streets of the city, take in the atmosphere at Machane Yehuda Market, meet both locals and tourists from all walks of life and feel the vibrations of street music all night.

  • DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
    No we do not cancel our tours if it rains, storm etc. It is very rare that conditions are so bad, that we have to cancel, so if you are in doubt - expect to run. 

    WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
    In Tel Aviv we have mild winters and warm summers, so weather conditions do not vary significantly. But it is always a good idea to check the weather conditions before travelling to Tel Aviv, so that you know what temperatures to expect.

    During the colder months we always recommend people to wear long sleeves as we have short stops along the run, in order to take photos and for the guide to talk about the attractions.

    In summer you can easily just wear a t-shirt and a pair of shorts/tights. It is, however, very important to remember sunscreen (at least SPF 30/50), so that sun burn is avoided. A hat can also be very handy in summertime in general.

    IS THERE WATER ON THE TOUR?
    We will provide you with bottled water during the tour. Also there are a few public water fountains along the way, so if you are in need of a sip of water, simply ask the guide to point out a drinking spot. Also, that would be the occasion to take a pic in front of one of Florence monuments!

    HOW FAST DO YOU RUN ON THE TOURS, DO I HAVE TO BE AN ELITE RUNNER TO PARTICIPATE?
    The running pace is set on our private tours by you. During our group tour we run a pace of about 6:30 min/km.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO STORE BAGS AND CLOTHES AT THE PLACE WE START?
    Unfortunately, there is no storage for bags. Please travel light.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE PICTURES ALONG THE WAY?
    Yes, you can bring your camera/mobile phone and snap away. If there is a certain place you would like to take a picture, then simply ask your guide.

    DO YOU HAVE A HOTEL PICK-UP SERVICE?
    We offer our private tours an optional hotel pick-up service. The hotel or apartment building should be on or close to the tour route.

    Please let us know your complete hotel or apartment address during the tour reservation process and we will check if we can meet you at your hotel/apartment.

tip  BOOKING TIP:
BOOK EARLY - GIVE US SOME TIME
We recommend to book your running tour minimum 2-3 days before your preferred tour date. Especially during the different high seasons, when many guests like to join our runs.
That will give the guide/city manager enough time to arrange together with you the last tour details like the meeting point, start time and to organize a personal tour guide for your unique and fun running experience.
