Visiting my home country, I discovered a half-marathon race during my visit and signed up. It was the Merotz Ha’Aviv, or the Spring Run in Ramat HaSharon, a suburb of Tel Aviv. It was a small town race run on a Saturday morning.
I began my racing “career” in Israel but went very far with running and racing in Barcelona. In the past few years I had the chance to participate in dozens of races, so I am able to note various aspects of the organization.
