Your Racing Options

Transportation to Eilat and from Naharia

Transportation to Eilat

Well, you won't believe it, but the bus is your best option.
You will find buses leaving Tel Aviv or any other big city, and in a few hours, you will be there.
Don't forget to order a ticket upfront

transportation from Modiin

Planning to finish in Modiin? Great!
We are glad to tell you that there is a train from there to any other train station, but a bus is also a good option

Transportation from Naharia

Less than 2km from the finish line, you will find a train station that will take you to any other train station in Israel - this is the best option!

A flight to eilat?

Yes! You can also do that, but you are still fresh, so a few hours by bus is much cheaper

transportation from Lehavim

Planning to start from Lehavim? Great!
We are glad to tell you that there is a train to the starting point and we recommend to reach there in evening and starting in the morning

We tailored the route from Eilat to Rosh Ha'nikra not only because we thought that the route is better that way but also because we knew that sometimes its not that easy reaching to Eilat by Bus but when you'r still fresh, its an easy job but after passing the finish line in Rosh Ha'nikra and riding the Epilogue to Naharia (less than 10km) you just want to grab a train, relax on the comfortable chair and sleep from 2 hours, when your bike next to you

Stories from Discover veterans

Nati Cohen, Full DIscover 24 winner:

A feeling of happiness hovered over me.

This happiness emerged about two years ago when I was introduced to the community.

I followed the HLC challenges and the Discover, and last year when Discover ended, I told myself, that's where I want to be, and so I reached April 4, 2024, standing at the starting line. I embarked on this journey, which for me is more a journey than a competition. During this journey, I used all the "tools" I had acquired over the years, and with their help, I reached the finish line.

The course, even if it needs improvements, was great, passing through various regions in our country and discovering small, new places within these regions, and magnificent landscapes.

The experience is immense, thanks to the amazing community here, Thank you to everyone who encouraged and supported, to those who came and met me along the way, you gave me the energy to continue.

It's enjoyable and fulfilling to be part of such a group, we'll continue to do so and even more.
