We have collected several questions related to the registration system and vital details regarding the Israman. Please read this page thoroughly before you contact us with questions, as you may find the answers here.
How can I register to the Israman?
The registration for the race is easy and simple. All that needs to be done is enter the registration page and follow the instructions. The registration system is working well and many participants from Israel and abroad, have already registered to the race successfully. However, if you still find it difficult to register, try registering on another computer. Try to avoid registering at your work place as it may have a secured surfing system that can cause certain obstruction while registering.
How can I register to the relay race?
Follow the relay registration link in the registration page. In the form, all three members must register together. Once filling first participant info, press on "add another participant" and repeat the process with the second and third participants. Payment for all three relay members must be made by the participant filling out the form.
What is the maximum number of starters?
The maximum number of participants allowed on the road at the same time in both Israman 226 and Israman 113 together is 1100 (for example, 900 individual and 200 relays = 1500 participants).
What is the final date for registration?
Registration ends on January 4th at 23:59 or when reaching the maximum number of participants. In past years the maximum number of participants limit wasn't reached, but as the number of starters increases dramatically each year, we expect to close the registration in mid December. Note that the registration fee increases as the event date becomes closer, so don't wait and register today!
Why is my Credit Card payment rejected?
Sometimes our payment system has difficulty to authorize foreign Credit Card payments. Please try choosing the PayPal payment option (you don't need to have a PayPal account in order to pay via PayPal).
Why can't I find my name in the participants' list?
The singles participants' list and the relays participants' list appears in the Israman website. Your name can be located in one of 3 options made possible in the site – follow the instructions mentioned. If you have failed to locate your name using one of the 3 options, perhaps your registration was removed due to registration payment failure. If you have paid and still have not been able to locate your name, please write an email to this address firstname.lastname@example.org, mentioning your registration referral number. An email not mentioning the registration referral number will not be answered.
Double registration – my name appears several times in the participants' list
If your name appears more than once in the participants' list, please check the "registration status": "paid" (משולם) or "unpaid" (לא משולם), listed in the status column on the right.
Now choose the right option:
1. If your name appears once as "paid" and other times as "unpaid", your unpaid registration will be automatically erased by the system without notice within 48 hours – there is no need to contact us in regards to this.
2. If your name appears several times with "unpaid" status next to it, The system will erase all your non-paid registrations within 48 hours without notice. It is possible to complete a full registration, including payment, without an added fee, by the usual method through the registration page. You may call 972-3-6092116/5 to pay by phone with an added 20 NIS fee (you must provide the registration referral number).
