The course takes the runners through the picturesque Holland Forest , climbs up along Roded creek, past the remains of an ancient gold mine in the Tuchin valley and then continues upwards towards the Shchoret mountain - truly breathtaking scenery.

Running in the desert presents formidable challenges that may be difficult to appreciate fully before coming to a race, no matter how realistic one’s training might be. The forbidding nature of the desert environment — the heat and the cold, the sand and the wind, the merciless sun - all of these factors combine to make the race much tougher than the distance itself would suggest.

The desert marathon website for the is full of useful tips on how to best deal with these challenges for beginners and also pro runners.
