(Scroll down for video) One man made a grand entrance to the Jerusalem Marathon by landing in a blimp.
The amazing view of a blimp hovering over Jerusalem, Israel, before landing on the sidewalk, was caught on video.
The marathon is an annual event held in Jerusalem on March 1st. The marathon attracts thousands of people from around the world who participate in the marathon. About 20,000 people ran in the marathon.
The starting point of the marathon is at the Israeli parliament, Knesset, in the western part of the city.
There runners then head to the Givat Ram campus of the Hebrew University, they pass through different neighborhoods on their way to Hebrew University’s Mount Scopus campus in East Jerusalem.
The route descends to the Old City, taking runners through the Jaffa Gate and the Armenian Quarter and outside Zion Gate, on their way to the Jerusalem Forest.
Then they run to the finish point at the Soccer Park.
