Bridges built in a divided city

  The Jerusalem Marathon winds its way through one of the most historic cities on earth.
One group of runners aims to shift all the tension in the country, using a simple sport to build bridges between people.

The Jerusalem Marathon is run over a challenging course, with several steep hills. Now in its seventh year, some 30,000 people took part last Friday in a series of races, from a mile-long family fun run, to the full-length marathon.

The runners who participate in this organization are clear, there is only one direction for Israelis and Palestinians: forward.
