Safety Instructions & Terms

Safety Instructions

Below are some health guidelines for runners from “Standards for holding sports events for long runs” (Ministry of Health, 2013).
The preparation regarding drinking should start a day or two before the race, in order to reach the race full. The general guidelines are: 48 hours before the race
1) Increase the eating of pasta-type carbohydrates, or rice or potatoes or bananas – all this causes an increase in fluid retention in the body (1 gram of glycogen stores 2.7 grams of water with it)
2) salt the food a little more than usual, another factor in increasing the accumulation of fluids in the body along with the salts (salts, which are excreted with the sweat during running)
3) Do not overdo drinking coffee and alcoholic beverages that increase fluid excretion from the body
4) Drink 500 cc of water two hours before the jump
5) Take another half-liter bottle of water to the start area and drink in small sips until the moment of the start

while running
Drink water at every stop. In hot conditions, you should also pour water on your head and body and cool off with water sprinklers along the route. The amount of water to be drunk during running should correspond to the amount lost in sweat, as calculated during the training (see above). Do not drink more than that, due to the danger of developing hyposodium in the serum (hypothermia). The recommended drinking rate is 7 ml/kg/hour for men (for a person weighing 70 kg about half a liter per hour) and 6 ml/kg/hour for women. In addition, add another 100-300 ml per hour according to the rate of sweating and according to the weather conditions.

after the run
Drink water as needed. As explained above, it is recommended to weigh yourself before and after the run (without clothes, which are soaked in a lot of sweat) to estimate the volume of fluids lost during the run. Each drop of 1 kg from the weight before the run requires drinking 1 liter of water (no more!).

Preparation for races at different distances
Participating in long runs (over 10 km) requires careful preparation over time. as part of the training routine. The runner must know his body and its limitations and identify possible signs of distress, so that when he arrives at the race he:
A. Prepared himself through appropriate training for the relevant distance in which he participates
B. He will recognize during the run the distress signals that the body transmits and stop the run before the collapse.
Do not run in races distances greater than those that the participant has prepared himself in training. For example: someone who trains for a 10 km run will not compete in a longer race. Participation in the half marathon is recommended after completing at least 3 runs of 10 km in the two years prior to the half marathon.
Participation in a marathon is recommended after participating in at least 2 half-marathon races that took place in the two years before the marathon.
Basic rules of conduct for participating in long distance races:

1. It is recommended to be checked by the family doctor before starting training. The test should also include an ECG chart to rule out congenital heart defects.
2. It is recommended to consult on the training plans with a coach authorized for this.
3. It is recommended to train in a running group with a coach.
4. In case of injury or illness, every day that is “lost” requires 2 days of back-to-back training in the training program.
5. If the runner has an illness accompanied by fever, or upset stomach or diarrhea, in the week before the race – do not participate in the race at all and consult a professional about a plan to return to training.

Health and Safety

It is known that despite all the preparations, some runners get into trouble during the run, so we ask for your attention and commitment to the instructions established for your protection and for their benefit.
The instructions given here are not meant to replace a controlled training program, supervised and led by a qualified trainer and sports and health professionals.
It is recommended to be checked by the family doctor before starting training. The test should also include a periodic physical fitness test (ergometric test).
In case of injury or illness, every day that is “lost” requires at least two training days of rehabilitation and returning to the level and pace of faith you were at. If you suffered in the days before the race from an illness accompanied by fever or upset stomach or diarrhea – do not participate in the race! A doctor and trainer should be consulted about the timing of returning to the trust program.
Read and learn the topic of preventing heat stroke and get used to drinking a lot.
Give thought to nutrition, sleep and preparations for the race. Throughout the race itself, drinking and nutritional enrichment stations are scattered – use them, quench your thirst, stock up on an energy supplement and continue on, don’t skip a single station.

Be sure to wear a hat and it is recommended to wear sunglasses.

Nutrition Recommendations

The Israel Marathon was born out of a love for running and a desire to establish an international level racing scene in Israel with the special character of Israeli society.

It all started in 2008 when a friend returned from the New York Marathon and ignited a spark of passion in Ofer Padan, CEO of the Israel Marathon, which fell on the 50-year-old crisis and was also the opening shot of the departure from rent to independence.

Ofer turned the idea into a reality when he worked together with the Tel Aviv Municipality and joined the founding team of the first Tel Aviv Marathon on the occasion of the Tel Aviv-Jaffa centennial celebrations, and from there everything is history.

The Israel Marathon has become a leading company in just a decade, full of diverse, unique, colorful and very, very Israeli races and running events.

You know them all: the Jerusalem Marathon, which we were partners in building the concept for and marketing at its inception, the desert marathon in Eilat – a breathtaking marathon that has no competitors in Israel and the entire region in cross-country marathons, the oldest Tiberias Marathon in Israel, which is undergoing a facelift and constant innovation under the winning baton of the Israel Marathon team, and a host of others. Other and favorite events: the Bible Marathon, the wineries race, the crane race, the volcano race, the Hermon race, the Arad race from Masada to the sunrise, the Sderot race, the Alam Holon race, the night race on the walls of Jerusalem, the music race in Israel, and many more And good ones as well that you will hear about.

With the development of the company, Marathon Israel became an official member of the international marathon organization – aims.
In 2016, a delegation of the organization was hosted in Israel under the auspices of the Israel Marathon and toured all the sites where marathons are held in Israel.

The opening to the international arena gave birth to a new opportunity, and the Israel Marathon is also a leader in the field of encouraging incoming tourism following unique running events in Israel, and works in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism, the local heads and international running groups and organizations.

Over the course of a decade we have gained a lot of experience, but the greatest asset of the Israel Marathon is the running community. A community of over 100,000 runners and joggers, who are connected to the running events and to the company’s activities with great mutual love.

With the development of the racing industry, the Israel Marathon added another layer to its events, and a direct connection to families and the community is a candle to our feet, with family sections and multi-activity sports events and designated sections for children and families.

Over the years, we have led a movement of communities that connects and connects populations with unique and special needs to society’s races – cancer survivors, the Juvenile Diabetes Association, the Eye Contact group, special education schools, and much more – we embrace and connect all of them to the running events, and make special allocations available for them respectively.

At the end of a decade of activity, the Israel Marathon is currently focused on building concept events that give the participant a complete and complete experience, and alongside the running events provides full value to runners with content events, a platform for excellent professionals as well as a platform for runners – a blogging system that every runner can enjoy and express his private running experience in .

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Israel Marathon, we engraved a binding motto on our flag – “a whole world of running”, and with this motto we promise to take you into the next decade of running in Israel: unique, different, renewed, current, different and never ceases to excite every time.
