Gaza Marathon
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) relies upon the generosity of its donors to carry out Summer Games. The 2011 Marathon raised over $1 million for Summer Games and they hope to raise even more from the 2012 Marathon.

The tiny Gaza Strip, surrounded by Israel, Egypt, and the Mediterranean, is 42km long, exactly the length of an official marathon. Along the route from north to south, nearly 2,000 children, including children with special needs, will run relays, while adults, from professional Gazan athletes training for the Olympics to amateur runners, will run the full marathon.

This is a chance for Gaza residents, refugees, students, and supporters alike to come together and participate in a unique event organized to support Summer Games. The next marathon will be held on 1 March 2012 and your support is critical for the success of 2012 Summer Games.

Take on the challenge
Hold a sister event to fundraise for Summer Games in your town. Start training and come to Gaza to participate in the Marathon. Email gazamarathon@unrwa.org
