The organizers of the Tel Aviv Marathon were forced to cancel the event in the middle on Friday morning, after numerous runners suffered injuries due to the unseasonable heat. While most of the runners had completed their tracks, there were about 500 runners on the full marathon track who had not yet finished.
MDA treated at least 75 runners during the Tel Aviv Marathon on Friday morning. In total, 15 of those were taken to Ichilov hospital, with 2 in serious condition, 4 in moderate and 9 in light condition.
