Israman takes place in Eilat, Israel, the furthest southern point in Israel. Located on the Red Sea, it is home to some of the best diving in the world. It is also known for its tax free shopping zone and opportunities to splurge on jewelry and clothing. Eilat is accessible via a quick flight from Tel Aviv’s domestic airport, or by car via two main highways. If you’re considering a winter race, particularly if you’re based in Europe, this is the race to consider. The ten hour flight from Newark to Tel Aviv—and 12 hour return flight—can make an active person stir crazy. Don’t forget compression tights or socks to keep legs on both legs of the flight. The race is on a Friday, which works best for observing the Sabbath from Friday at sunset to Saturday at sunset.
