The Mother of All Relays Lands in Israel!

September 14-15, 2017

Hood To Coast Relay is thrilled to announce a partnership with the Bible-Revival Relay race. HTC Israel racers will experience hills, valleys, mountains, rivers, cliffs and springs over a beautiful 200km (125 mile) course. Participants run and walk directly through areas of great historical and biblical significance including Joshua in the Valley of Avalon, Samson in Tzora and Eshtaol, and David and Goliath in the Valley of Elah.

Eran Ohana, Director of tourism in Mate Yehuda Regional Council: “Mate Yehuda Regional Council is thrilled having this partnership with HTC, the mother of all relays. We are confident that this partnership will add value, and expose participants outside Israel to our beautiful area through this amazing experience.”

The Bible-Revival relay in its 5th year, will include 24 sections of 6-12 kilometers having groups of 4, 6, or 8 covering the distance. In 2017, there will also be 30k, 50k, 70k, 100k and 200k single ultra races. Those most unique athletes, covering the 200k ultra will be passing through the full relay course and are expected to finish it in ~30 hours. To enable an awesome experience, Bible-Revival Village will be set up and open during the whole event, serving as our start and finish point and offering participants food, drinks, great music and a place to rest.
