Last Friday, thousands of people from Israel and all over the world descended on the capital to run in the annual Jerusalem Marathon.
There were options to run shorter races of 2km, 5km, 10km and a half marathon through the streets of Jerusalem.
Thousands more still came to cheer on the athletes as they enjoyed a sunny, spring day, trekking up and down the hills of Jerusalem.
A really cool video was made by Simcha Jessel of the marathon route – with great views, and a unique perspective of the day.
Watch the video below:
Jerusalem Marathon 2016Jerusalem Marathon 2016 – מרתון ירושלים 2016 #irunjemRunning with all of my brothersI always wondered how far we could goIf we could break through the ceiling above usThere’d be no point of us looking belowWe could be freeFinally, we could be freeI been through the darkest of caves and sufferingOne hundred steps off the end of the roadPainted with passion, my favorite colorHope I’m alive when the story gets oldI ain’t at home, home’s where I’m goingI close my eyes to seeI’ll take my throne, lay it on a mountainAnd make myself a kingLost in the world full of nonbelieversSearching for smoke in a stillwater pondA nothing king, they called a dreamerThis is my life and I call it a songKicked through the shackles, broke through the chainsThere’s no oppression, there’s no one to blame but youRunning with all of my brothersI always wondered how far we could goIf we could break through the ceiling above usThere’d be no point of us looking below— Kings by Tribe SocietyAll rights reserved to Humans of JerusalemFilmed by Simcha JesselAudio copyright of Tribe Society
