Israelis said they also planned to hold five-kilometer (30nuke) evening runs in the cities of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Beersheva in solidarity with the Boston Marathon victims.
Organizer Ilia Rabinovich said the gesture was to show Americans that it was important to "continue running."
The 26-year-old marathon enthusiast estimated some 300 people had signed up for the runs.
"We feel a lot of compassion to these innocent people who are victims of terrorist attacks," he said.
