In light of the adversities that Lebanon endured, and as a confirmation of the country’s determination to host international events, the Beirut Marathon Association will stage the BLOM Bank Beirut Marathon on November 26, 2006.
The event has always proven that success can be achieved when determination and effort are combined. In 2005, more than 20,000 participants from 70 countries took part, including several elite athletes.
This year, the BLOM Bank Beirut Marathon will signify the strength of Lebanon’s foundation despite all political hurricanes, all human loss, and material damages. The participation of the Lebanese immigrants is encouraged and will reinforce the spirit of continuity.
