The scenic landscapes on the Galilee Coexistence Trail between Dalton and Gush Halav were a fantastic backdrop for the Merom Hagalil – KKL-JNF race that took place during the Passover holiday. Hundreds of local residents and athletes from all over Israel took part in the project, which was made possible by a contribution from the Ergas-Lopez family of Chile.
The experienced runners participated in a competitive route 10 kilometers long that started at the Dalton industrial park and continued in the direction of Gush Halav on a road paved by KKL-JNF thanks to a donation from the Ergas-Lopez family of Chile. The less experienced athletes, including many children, made do with a popular segment 2 kilometers long.
On regular days, the Coexistence Trail mainly serves the residents of the vicinity, who go out to walk or run in the morning or evening and enjoy the beautiful and safe route. On the way, they also get to know their neighbors of different religions—Jews, Muslims, Christians, Druze and Circassians. Could there be a better way to bring hearts together than a sporting event together in natural surroundings?
