Hood To Coast Israel September 10-11, 2020
2020 Hood To Coast Israel
2019 was another epic relay and adventure for teams from throughout Israel, and for HTC Training Team’s second international journey. The overnight one-day relay trail course was both breathtaking and challenging.
This nearly surreal experience for HTC Training Team featured vineyards, beautiful hillsides, soaring mountains, and a race course with infamous historical sites like the site of “David and Goliath”. International participants also spent time on the gorgeous beaches of Tel-Aviv, toured the old city of Jerusalem, and floated in the Dead Sea.
The NEW and improved 2019 course was a beautiful 115km (70 mile) route with hills, valleys, mountains, rivers, cliffs and springs. The same popular course is back in 2020. Participants run and walk directly through areas of great historical and biblical significance including Joshua in the Valley of Avalon, Samson in Tzora and Eshtaol, and David and Goliath in the Valley of Elah.
Eran Ohana, Director of tourism in Mate Yehuda Regional Council: “Mate Yehuda Regional Council is thrilled having this partnership with HTC, the mother of all relays. We are confident that this partnership will add value, and expose participants outside Israel to our beautiful area through this amazing experience.”
The Bible-Revival relay in its 7th year, will include 12 sections of 6-12 kilometers having groups of 3, 4, or 6 covering the distance. To enable an awesome experience, Bible-Revival Village will be set up and open during the whole event, serving as our start and finish point and offering participants food, drinks, great music and a place to rest.
Race Organizers have partnered with Israel Connection to design a full package covering accommodation and transportation while in Israel (flights will be organized by the participant). This travel package also includes breakfast, dinner, race day meals and a staff member to accompany you during the race! 2020 Travel Packages are now available for booking.
