Running For Palestine

Running For Palestine

In a powerful symbolic act aimed at reclaiming a basic right denied - the right to movement - 3,200 runners from Palestine and over 50 countries joined the third Palestine Marathon in Bethlehem, running for not just time but peace, freedom, recognition. The race - run in two loops because there's no 26 -mile stretch without a checkpoint or wall - was won by Nader al-Masri of Gaza, where victories these days are few.
