Marathon Christmas Ornaments

Personalized Christmas Ornament

$12.95

SKU: BR12007

The exact distance of the marathon race is 26 miles and 385 yards or 42.195 kilometers which is the distance from the Battle of Marathon to Athens from which Greek Pheidippides ran to announce that the Persians had been defeated. In memory of this historic event of pure exertion, there are over 500 marathon races around the world, with this road race becoming an Olympic event in 1896. Marathon training is a long process and pushes your body to the limit requiring a lot of stamina for recreational athletes to keep running. The fastest time has been by a Kenyan runner and is 2 hours 3 minutes.

Dimensions: 3 1/4" diameter
Material: Glass Ball
NOTE: This is not a toy. It is not suitable for children to play with.


Ornaments shown on our site are personalized, as examples only, so you can see where we put the words/names you give us. Some ornaments allow you to select hair or uniform color. If there is no color choice, it is not available on that particular ornament. We will do everything possible to catch any mistakes in spelling, etc., but are not responsible if we do as you request, and it is then not correct. The ornament you see above is the way it will look when you get it, except for the personalizing instructions you give us and any optional attributes you select.
I am committed to delivering our customers the greatest selection of unique, personalized Christmas ornaments and gifts on the internet! We have over 6000 Christmas ornaments to choose from, each personalized with a name or special greeting from you!
Sincerely, Dianne Weller — Owner, Ornamentshop.com

7/16/2014 - "I often get frustrated with web pages when ordering on line but not with this one! The instructions were clear and all transactions worked the first time! Very easy process and I will order from this company next year as well. Marsha S."

12/7/2014 - "You guys are fantastic. I have already told everyone I know about your affordable prices and speedy delivery. It's not every day that you find a company like yours. I sincerely appreciate your help and attention. I will be ordering from you folks again! Merry Christmas and God bless. Amanda H."

8/8/2014 - "I have been purchasing Christmas ornaments for my grandchildren for about 4 years. They have been very happy with my choices. I try to select items that go along with what their life/interests/occupations are. They range in ages from 11 to 27. I have purchased ornaments each year since they were born. I only wish that I had found Ornament Shop many years earlier, it would have made my shopping much easier and the selections much better (and sometimes cheaper!) Can't remember just how I found the shop, but am very happy that I did. Ann F."

10/20/2014 - "I love this store. I buy items to celebrate the things that my daughter is into. I want her to have a Christmas tree full of memories one day. The selection of ornaments and the personalization is wonderful. I will buy from them again. I wish they had more singing ornaments for ethnic kids. Lori W."

11/9/2014 - "I loved the ornaments. They were just what I wanted. Yes I would recommend your sight to everyone. You are the only place that I have gotten ornaments from. I have been getting them from you for a least the last five years. I just wished you had more of the gma and gpa ones. I have 18 grandchildren and can never find one with that many things on it to personalize. Thank you Pat Ehlers"

8/27/2014 - "This is my 3rd time ordering ornaments from the OrnamentShop.com. They even send you a reminder to order in August. I'm all ready with my special family ornaments, which is now off my Christmas list! Love them! Holly S."
