Christmas Run 2016

Adrenaline running club – Christmas Run

A year ago, we launched for the first time a Christmas Run in Mielia. Due to the request of the public we are happy to announce that we have decided to turn the race in to a tradition and hold it every year.

The Christmas Run is a unique race to mark the holidays of light: Christmas and Chanuka, that shall be held on December 23rd, is a welcomed initiative of the council of Mielia in the western Galilee. The Christmas Run aims to promote sports, culture, and social values.

The Race will take place between magical alleys of Meilia, a Christian village filled with modern and unique historic sites and every year for Christmas adorned fir trees lit up and a variety of ornaments and colored lights are throughout the village, which gives the village a spectacular atmosphere and a magical look.

In the Galilean human puzzle in which we live, the race is an opportunity to connect people from all sectors and make the common run, not only for sports activities is important, but also to meet cultural, social, fun and crosses religions.

On this day, we invite everyone together Christians, Muslims, Druze and Jews of all ages and all sexes to join the joint running to mark the holidays of light and for the sake of good neighborly relations and rapprochement.

The race offers three tracks – 2 Km for children, 6 km and 10 Km (competitive) and shall be adjusted to fit singles and families.

The race will be adjourned with an exciting and festive ceremony in which we shall award trophies.
