The Run Across Palestine — a project of Michigan-based On the Ground and the Palestine Fair Trade Association — is about to begin! Over the next five days, half a dozen runners will traverse 129 miles (approximately a marathon every day) across the West Bank to raise awareness about the challenges facing Palestinian olive farmers. Along the way, they'll interact with farmers, families, activists and curious onlookers. Follow the Run Across Palestine through our daily web series, The People and the Olive and at http://runacrosspalestine.org/

This is the first video in Aaron Dennis' and Jacob's Wheeler's seven-part web video series, "The People and the Olive" which has been produced daily during the ultra-marathon.
