Over 1,800 Border Police officers and private security personnel will be on hand during Friday morning’s sixth annual International Jerusalem Marathon, which will draw approximately 25,000 registered runners from across the globe, police said on Wednesday.

“Heightened security is taking place in the capital, with a number of roads being closed during the early hours of the morning until the conclusion of the race, which will follow the same route as last year,” said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.

The road closures, delineated on the municipality’s website, will go into effect at 5:30 a.m. and be lifted after the final race concludes shortly before noon, he said. Ben-Zvi Boulevard will be closed to vehicular traffic from Thursday evening at 11 p.m. Other streets closing the day of the event are Ruppin Boulevard, Rabin Boulevard, Chernichovsky, Hapalmah, Hanassi, Keren Hayesod, King George, Jaffa Road, King David, Pierre Koenig and many others.
