Run The Wall 2024

  • Run The Wall... as an act of solidarity 
  • Run The Wall... as a call for Palestinian rights
  • Run The Wall... to demand an end to Israel’s war on Gaza

Home demolitions, illegal settlements, land confiscations, shoot-to-kill policies and the illegal Separation Wall. These are daily realities for Palestinians living in the West Bank.

In Gaza, nowhere is safe
Over 1% of the population have been killed, 70% of these are women and children, over 50,000 injured and 1.9 million people have been displaced. It is a humanitarian disaster where people are facing starvation and the rapid spread of disease. Join people around the world in Running The Wall for Palestine.

“Things you’d love to see... people from all over the world running for the same cause! One day I’m sure we’ll be able to run in the streets of Palestine!” Karim Saad, UAE (2023)

“It is a huge opportunity to reach out to people who previously might not be aware of peaceful resistance ideas when it comes to Palestine. As our friends at Right To Movement say, “We run to tell a different story.” Eamonn Murphy, Northern Ireland (2021, 2022 and 2023) and the Palestine Marathon (2017)

We started Run The Wall in 2021 with our Palestinian friends, Right To Movement when Covid-19 caused the Palestine Marathon to be cancelled. Run The Wall has now become an annual event. Each year, we invite people from around the world to run for Palestine on the same weekend as 10,000 people participate in the Palestine Marathon in Bethlehem.

However, this year, the Gaza War and the crackdown on the West Bank mean that the Palestine Marathon has been pushed back to a provisional date of 10th May. We have decided we should not wait until then but press forward with the original dates, as it is vital that we show our support for Palestinians at this time.

The route of the Palestine Marathon in Bethlehem is shaped by the 8-metre-high Separation Wall, at times running alongside the Wall, other times forcing people to turn back and run in a different direction as there is not 26 miles of contiguous Palestinian State. 

So, to Run the Wall is to demand the Right to Movement and all of the rights that Palestinians are denied.
