Almost a thousand runners took part in the first relay race jointly organized by KKL-JNF and Shvoong Sport Events along the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv cycle trail. In the course of a single long night, the runners covered 125 kilometers along this trail established by KKL-JNF with funds donated by the brothers Joseph and Wolf Lebovic of Canada. En route, the runners traversed a variety of landscapes: KKL-JNF forests, woodland, farmland and river gullies.KKL


“This is the first time we’ve run on this trail,” said Gilad Kovo, one of the first contestants to cross the finishing line. “It’s wonderful that here in our own country we’ve got places like this where we can establish new records.”
