The Second Annual Mechina Race:
On Friday, April 7, 2017, the second annual race of the "One of Us" preparatory course took place.
This race commemorates Staff Sergeant Jordan Ben Simon, a graduate of the first class of the Mechina and a combat soldier in the Egoz unit who fell during Operation Tzuk Eitan, and Lieutenant Pini Cohen, an officer in the Givati reconnaissance unit who was killed in operational activity in the Gaza Strip, And former Mossad chief Meir Dagan, the organization's first president.
The spectacular 5 km route crosses the Hadassah Neurim boarding school and continues to run across one of the most beautiful beaches in Israel.
More than 450 runners participated in a race that exceeded all expectations. The excitement, the sports spirit, the gorgeous landscape, the magical atmosphere and the joy of the participants reflected the spirit of the place and the spirit of the good people who participated in it.
There was no doubt that this was an exciting sporting celebration and a unique experience. See you next year!
