Gaza Marathon an opportunity to illustrate peace in Palestine

Let us pray that the people of Gaza, Palestine are able and willing to come out in the tens if not hundreds of thousands to cheer on the runners in the first marathon to be run over the full 42 kilometre length of the Gaza Strip, Inshallah.

I believe that if the weather is nice it will be a beautiful site for people to see the men, women and children of Palestine encouraging the runners on.

May 5th to feature first ever full-length marathon in Palestine

According to the Edmonton Journal:

The race, organized by United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), will take place on May 5 with the aim of raising funding for the UN refugee agency's Summer Games programme which is held every year in the Hamas-run territory.

The route runs from the northern town of Beit Hanun and heads south along the coastal road until it ends in Rafah, a sprawling city on Gaza's southern border with Egypt, said Gemma Connell, an UNRWA employee who is organizing the event.

"Anyone that's ever worked in Gaza has thought about doing a marathon here because it is exactly 42.2 kilometres (26 miles) long," she told AFP.

Although only a handful of people are expected to run the full 26-mile route, more than a 1,000 local children and young people will take part at various stages along the way, running in a relay format, she said.
