Dead Sea Marathon 2020 – Run at the Lowest Point on Earth
Friday, February 7, 2020, Ein Bokek.
The Dead Sea Marathon further extends the legacy of the well-established international Ein Gedi Run, which for over three decades has attracted tens of thousands of professional and amateur athletes, offering a captivating running experience against the backdrop of fantastic and serene landscapes.
The tradition of the Ein Gedi Run in memory of Tomer and Giora Ron continues with a dedicated 10K run.
The main area of this larger running celebration, at the new hotel promenade at Ein Bokek, features the start and finish lines of the run.
The closing event will also be held here.
Dead Sea hotels offer accommodations and hospitality package deals at the heart of the event.
The highlight of this running experience is its course, which leads through the dikes at the Dead Sea Works plant and well into the southern Dead Sea basin.
Reflecting the 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 the mainly compressed kurkar ensures high speed and optimal performance.

List of Races:
10 Km Run – a run along the new Dead Sea promenade, in memory of Tomer and Giora Ron.
21.1 Km Half Marathon – a fast and flat course across the dikes of the southern Dead Sea basin.
42 Km Marathon – a fast course around the Dead Sea’s southern shore and 21Km on the central dike.

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