Now in its fifth year, the Palestine 'Right to Movement' Marathon in Bethlehem was set up to raise awareness of the fact that you can't run 26 miles in the 'Little Town' without going through a checkpoint.
Join Team Amos and run the Palestine 'Right to Movement' Marathon or Half Marathon in Bethlehem on 31st March 2017.
Now in its fifth year, the Palestine 'Right to Movement' Marathon in Bethlehem was set up to raise awareness of the fact that you can't run 26 miles in the 'Little Town' without going through a check point.
The 2017 marathon will take place on Friday 31st March and we are looking for marathon and half marathon runners to join Team Amos. We welcome runners of all ages, men and women, and with a range of experience.
The Palestine Marathon is challenging as the route requires you to run the same stretch four times, it is undulating terrain, and temperatures can be very hot even in April. So we would encourage first time marathon runners to do the half marathon.
When you run a marathon, you have to visualise yourself finishing it. You have to see the end way before you finish.

The Team Amos trip runs from Tuesday 28th March – Sunday 2nd April, 2017 and Runners will need to raise £1,000 for our partners in Palestine. We will provide fundraising materials, support and advice to help you reach this target.
While you're in Palestine, there will be plenty of opportunity to get to know Bethlehem, including visits to our partner projects as well as time for sight-seeing. We'll also be visiting Hebron and Jerusalem as well as a trip out to the desert, which is really not to be missed.
The trip will cost £550 including full board accommodation, transport, entry fees and much more. It excludes flights, allowing for more flexibility and hopefully a cheaper trip.
NB: Please do not register with the Palestine Marathon website. We have a group of places held by the event organisers as one of their UK partners so if you register directly with them, you may end up paying the entry fee twice.
