| 5k International Jewish-Arab Race in East Jerusalem June 30

Zev Stub     Jabal Mukaber
Tuesday, 27 June 4:56 PM

On June 30, 2017, Runners Without Borders will hold an international race in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabal Mukaber.  At least six hundred participants from East and West Jerusalem are expected to join in the five kilometer race, organized by Runners Without Borders following its successful three kilometer pilot race in Jaber Mukaber on March 3, 2017.

Register at The price includes a 10% discount for Janglo members.   

The goal of the race is to strengthen the connections between East and West Jerusalem and encourage cooperation and collaboration between Jews and Arabs, particularly in light of the tensions in the area.

The race participants will enjoy a five kilometer course extending from Jaber Mukaber through the Peace Forest to the mixed neighborhood of Abu Tor. In addition, there will be a performance by a mixed Arab-Jewish musical ensemble that will be open to race participants and their friends, family and supporters.

In addition to Runners Without Borders’ own mixed Arab-Jewish running group, dozens of other organized running groups will participate in the race. Notable among them are the running group from Jaber Mukaber and the running group from the bilingual Hebrew-Arab School (Hand in Hand).

Through its weekly professionally-run training sessions, Runners Without Borders successfully creates genuine connections among its sixty members, who are drawn from neighborhoods in East and West Jerusalem. These include Jaber Mukaber, Ras El Amud, Silwan, Shuafat, Beit Hanina, Tsur Baher, Gilo, Kiryat Menachem, Arnona and Talpiot in Jerusalem, and even the settlements of Tekoa and Adam.

Runners Without Borders was created by Jerusalemites runners at the end of 2014 as an answer to the wave of violence that erupted in Jerusalem.

Members of Runners Without Borders’ running group participate regularly in competitions and races in Israel and abroad, including marathons in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Berlin, Milan and the Richmond Race in London.
