2012 Gaza Summer Games - The Gaza Marathon

UNRWA relies upon the generosity of its donors to carry out Summer Games.

What is Summer Games?

Summer Games provides a unique opportunity for 250,000 children in Gaza – a safe place to play, make friends, learn and express themselves freely. Through art, theatre, sports, beach games and music, the children participate in camps across the Gaza Strip in schools, on beaches and in orphanages and hospitals.

Gaza 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 organised 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.
