Tel Aviv is set to host the inaugural Hoodies Singles Run on Sept. 22, 2022, which is being described as a “race for love”.
An estimated 15,000-20,000 people are expected to take part in the event, and after running their choice of a four-kilometer (2.5-mile) or an eight-kilometer (five-mile) route, participants will cross the finish line at the lighthouse at the old Tel Aviv port and be ushered straight into a dating event, with live music and a DJ.
Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai spoke about the upcoming mega-event saying, “Tel Aviv-Jaffa, like love, is exciting and thrilling, so it’s no wonder that single men and women come here to find partners for life. And what better way to meet the love of your life than at a new sports event in one of the most romantic places in the city, the lighthouse at the Tel Aviv port. I invite everyone to take part in the race and start the new Jewish year with a new relationship.”
