Our yearly Night Run (in the sun)

.

Our yearly Meitar Night Run got underway just after 7 pm. 


Some parents ran together with their sons and daughters. 
Long shadows in the setting sun.  


The runners rounded this roundabout and ran back to the center of town, up hills and down hills. 


On the uphill, into the strong still-hot glaring sun, some of the less-inexperienced participants had slowed to a walk. 
The other, marathon-type, serious joggers would run for hours into the night on longer routes.  
I was happy just to stand still and take pictures and admire other people's endurance.

Hi Ann. No, no special cause for this one. But sometimes we DO have walks and races for specific causes, like this one:
