Walk, jog or run the Palestine Marathon through the hills of Bethlehem and support freedom of movement for the people of Palestine with runners from all over the world.

During this incredible trip you’ll spend a day joining Penny Appeal teams visiting refugee camps and distributing food parcels in the West Bank and have plenty of free time to explore the sacred lands of Palestine. You’ll have three nights’ accommodation in Bethlehem where you can visit the Old City and two nights in Jerusalem where you can see the majestic Masjid al Aqsa.

You can walk, jog or run your way along either a 5km, 10km, half (13.1 mile) or full marathon (26.2 mile) route, so fundraisers of all abilities are able and welcome to join in – there’s even a family option. The marathon route takes you through the centre of Bethlehem, past refugee camps and alongside the apartheid wall, and then through Bethlehem’s beautiful hills and olive groves.

Palestine Marathon 2023

Our 2023 trip - the tenth anniversary of the first Palestine Marathon - was a massive success! Over 90 Fundraisers joined us for the five day trip raising over £220,000!

90 of our amazing fundraisers spent five incredible days helping others, enjoying culture and raising over £220,000 for our Emergency Response appeal - a huge success! 

Our runners followed the marathon route through the centre of Bethlehem, past refugee camps and alongside the Apartheid Wall, a scenic introduction to the beauty of Palestine. They were joined by volunteers from all over the world to support freedom of movement for the people of Palestine. 

Running wasn’t all they got up to! Our incredible team of fundraisers spent the remainder of their trip doing good, taking in the scenery and immersing themselves in culture. Distributing food parcels with necessities to hundreds of refugees was first on the itinerary, followed by exploring the sacred lands of Palestine. No time was wasted as our volunteers spent three nights in Bethlehem, visiting the Old City and two more nights in Jerusalem, taking a trip to the majestic Masjid al Aqsa.  





By signing up to this life-changing challenge you will be asked to raise a minimum of £500 for our Love Palestine appeal, which supports the distribution of nutritious food parcels in Palestinian refugee camps, supports Palestinian farmers so they can cultivate and expand their olive farms, helps to create rooftop gardens that become a sustainable source of income for women and provides essential services, like medical care and clean water distribution, for the people affected by the Gaza Emergency. 

We’ll provide dedicated support from the moment you sign up. Once we receive your booking confirmation you will have access to all the information you need, from fundraising ideas to training regimes. You will also be accompanied by Penny Appeal staff during your five day trip so you’ll always have someone on-hand to help you.
