More than 20,000 runners are expected to gather for this year’s annual Tel Aviv Night Run on Wednesday night (8:45 PM). The 10-kilometer run (approximately 6.2 miles) passes through the city’s urban sites including the popular Habima Square and Dizengoff Street. Throughout the run, the participants also enjoy extravagant lighting installations and many vibrant music stages. The run concludes at the Yarkon Park where a party featuring good music, sports, fashion and VIP areas will be waiting for the participants.

The runners will be divided into four heats with a 15-minute gap between the departure of every heat. Mayor of Tel Aviv-Yafo Ron Huldai said last week: “The Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality cultivates a culture of urban physical activity and healthy living including the Night Run, which has become a beloved tradition by both residents and visitors. I invite everyone to experience within the heart of the Nonstop City the energetic run amid the vibrant festivity shared by runners and cheerers of all ages.”
