This will take place on the West Bank on Friday 12th January 2018.
The route is shown on a map here. Starting at the Temple of Hatshepsut, Deir el-Bahri, at 7:00 the runners proceed in an anticlockwise loop 4 times before returning to the start point. There are a number of shorter races as well. Expect some road closures at the start of the day. But this is not a large event: last year there were about 100 participants spread over the different categories.
