One of the most beautiful races that I participate in every year, hoping to participate and celebrate as a whole, but there are restrictions on travel due to the pandemic

من اجمل الماراثونات العالمية التي اشارك بها كل عام، متمنى المشاركة هذا العام فئة الكرسي المتحرك ، ولاكن التكاليف عالية واصبح هنالك خوف وتشديد على السفر بسبب جائحة كورنا ، متمني ان يرفع الله عنا هذا الوباء وتعود الحياة لطبيعتها

This race offers lots of prize money, maybe the most of any? They pay $200,000 for a win and an extra $250,000 if you set a world record. Ethiopian runners have been dominating the race since 2012.
