the Tel Aviv Marathon to be held on Friday, April 8, Tel Aviv mayor Ron Huldai

The organizers are
expecting around 15,000 people to ultimately participate in the seven different
events, with 1,200 to compete in the full marathon which will get under way at

running of the Tel Aviv marathon for a third straight year," Huldai said.
