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!

10/17/2014 - "I am always extremely satisfied with the quality of each item I purchase, AND this time when I had an issue with the ordering and application of a sale promo code, I was promptly contacted, and the issue was resolved within minutes(this problem due to MY ignorance of an extended sale, not the fault of the Company!). I always recommend that people shop this website rather than going from store to store and ending up empty-handed! Their selection is unbelievable! Sandra K."

8/7/2014 - "Christmas for me always comes in early August after I've received the box of ornaments I ordered from you! I go to my bedroom, close the door - and secretly unwrap each and every one of them... oohing and ahhing at how stinking cute they are! You guys do such a wonderful job! The personalization is always perfect! I can hardly wait to see the faces of our kids and grand kids when they get their 2014 ornaments. Thank you Debbie for always being such a help in answering any of my questions! After all these years of shopping with you, I feel like you're more of a friend than a customer service person! Bless you! I hope each of you at the OrnamentShop has a great Christmas! Jana R."

6/22/2014 - "Have ordered from your company a number of times, but didn't realize how good you were until I had recently had personalized gift items badly botched from another retailer on two separate occasions. Just received the latest shipment of three of your graduation ornaments: all beautifully detailed. Barbara S."
