The Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem will be overseeing the medical aspect of the Jerusalem marathon, which will take place on Friday morning 19 Adar. A team of physicians familiar with sport injuries headed by Prof. Na’ama Constantini will man the medical tent at the marathon along with Magen David Adom personnel.

The hospital has also distributed information sheets to runners with information as to how best prepare for the marathon and what foods to eat prior to running as well as following the race.

About 100 hospital employees will be among the tens of thousands of registered runners.
