Out of 25,000-odd participants in the 26-mile race, about a dozen sustained injuries or complications that required hospitalization, Army Radio reported. The relatively low number owed to cool weather that broke the heat on Friday morning just in time for the event.

In years when the race was held on hot days, dozens ended up in the hospital from exhaustion and dehydration. Several people have died in marathons in Israel, mostly in connection with weather-related complications.

The third and second slots of the Jerusalem race also went to African runners: Wendwesen Tilahun Damte of Ethiopia and Ronald Kimeli Kurgat, a Kenyan.
