More than 40,000 runners, including some 4,600 athletes from 80 different countries, joined the ninth annual Jerusalem Marathon on Friday morning, the largest-ever number of participants to take part in the race.

"This is an amazing event, and anyone who has not experienced it cannot understand the emotions. I intend to run next year," newly elected Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion told the crowds at the event.

Hundreds of police, Border Police and security officers were deployed to Jerusalem's streets, to keep the public safe and to direct traffic during and after the marathon.
