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.

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.


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. Download our information pack for further detailed information about the trip and itinerary.
