Webteam: March 2021
Run the Wall :
Rachel Hextall is joining with other runners from Palestine and around the world to cover the 750km length of the Israeli separation wall over the weekend of 26 — 27 March 2021.
She will be running 10km one day and Nordic walking 11km the next — to make up a half marathon distance. She only took up running in January 2020 and has never run this far before!
The event will raise awareness of the human cost of the Wall, highlight the lack of freedom of movement for Palestinians and help raise £15,000 to rebuild a Palestinian home.
Amos Trust normally takes a team to participate in the Palestine marathon in Bethlehem at the end of March but this year, for obvious reasons, that won't be happening so instead we will "RUN THE WALL" in our own towns.
