Well-organized and professional event. Great party vibe, tons of runners from around the world. Course is typically mellow making for fast race times. I ran with my daughter - tons of fun.

Between the main tent collapsing in the middle of the award ceremony, minimal aid stations, really awful shirts and strange hats, and a complete gong-show during the award ceremony, during which they could not figure out who should get what, causing the presenter to give up in anger, the race kinda bombed. I managed a 3rd overall and a 1st in category, but only came away with half my prize which was expired energy drink mix, and terrible music CD and a bottle of Jojoba oil?!? They lost my 3rd overall trophy and I had to remind them a few times about the 1st place finish... The scenery was beautiful though and I managed to have fun in spite of an ill-managed race. Of note, there was a bike race and a dualathon at the same site and I wonder if all the events may have contributed to the organizational chaos. Realtiming, the race management company has a harder time being organized. I've raced dozens of their races, and often there are problems.

Absolutely amazing experience! Gorgeous setting in the Jezreel Valley, the route follows part of an ancient Roman Road. Superbly managed race, can't say enough about how cool this event is! (that is the general consensus of anyone who's been involved)
200, 166, 133, 100, 61, 32, 12 km distances available.
The 100k was hard, especially running through the night, often alone, but it remains one of the most incredible experiences of my life.
