Hood To Coast Israel
Thursday, October 11, 2018 - Friday, October 12, 2018
2018 Dates Announced!
October 11-12, 2018
The Inaugural Hood To Coast Israel is in the books. It was another epic relay and adventure for teams from throughout Israel, and for HTC Training Team’s first international journey. The 200 kilometer trail course was both breathtaking and challenging. While teams of eight competed in the relay, individuals conquered distances of 30K, 50K, 100K, and 200K.
This nearly surreal experience for HTC Training Team featured vineyards, beautiful hillsides, soaring mountains, and a race course with infamous historical sites like the site of “David and Goliath”. International participants also spent time on the gorgeous beaches of Tel-Aviv, toured the old city of Jerusalem, and floated in the Dead Sea.
HTC Race Series would like to congratulate and thank the 12 amazing women that made the trip to Israel representing HTC Training Team. Led by Willee Broberg, this was HTC Training Team’s first international event. We are truly grateful to the members of the team for embodying the spirit that has made HTC Race Series a domestic and international attraction.
In 2018, 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 6th year, will include 24 sections of 6-12 kilometers having groups of 4, 6, or 8 covering the distance. In 2018, there will also be 30k, 50k, 70k, 100k and 200k single ultra races. In 2017 there were four total 200k ultra finishers. Who’s up for the challenge this year? 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.
