RUN4AFIKIM is the longest organized charity relay run in the world.
Established in 2013 by a dedicated group of volunteers, Run4Afikim is Afikim’s main fundraising event of the year.
The funds from the event are directly used to support and grow Afikim’s programs throughout the year. The run emphasizes the value of giving and caring for others, as well as getting to know the country, education for a healthy, active lifestyle, hard work and training.
Every year, dozens of athletes from Israel and abroad participate in this fantastic event. The event begins on a Wednesday evening in Jerusalem and small teams of runners continue non-stop for 36 hours covering the full 370 km (230 miles) distance until arriving in Eilat on Friday morning.
