News for the Traveler

Marathon enthusiasts have yet another race to choose from. This competition isn't in Boston or even the New York, but in Israel. The 17th International Sea of Galilee Marathon will be held in December, and the race is open to all amateur athletes fit enough to compete. The marathon follows a route along the shores of this legendary lake, starting from Kibbutz En Gev on the eastern shore.

Details about entering the marathon - as well as travel information - may be obtained from International Travel Planners, 14 East 28 Street, New York, N.Y. 10016. In New York, telephone (212) 683-4854; outside the state, call toll-free, (800) 223-7406.
