Safety and Security


We at Shalva understand that interested race participants and their families may be concerned about the security status in Israel. Let us assure you that the safety and security of our runners is our highest priority.

The Jerusalem Marathon is much more than a race for Team Shalva; it is also a symbol of solidarity.
United we run
The Israeli government takes strict security measures to guard public places. As your security is our biggest concern, we closely follow all safety and security guidelines set forth by the Ministry of Security. The marathon itself is a highly secure event with thousands of police and security personnel deployed throughout the city and along the routes.

Our wonderful mayor Nir Barkat often points out that Jerusalem is one of the safest cities in the world so we look forward to hosting you for an exciting, memorable and above all, safe Jerusalem Marathon experience
