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!

8/25/2014 - "I have purchased ornaments from Ornament Shop.com for 4 or 5 years. I have 6 grandchildren ranging in ages from 11 - 25 and have been purchasing Christmas ornaments since they were born. I look for ornaments that have something to do with their interests, or where they are in their lives at this particular time. i.e., college freshman,(college boy) aspiring music teacher (guitar), lover of horses (brown horse w/saddle), coach (lacrosse equipment), golfer/caddy(golf green) and stylish lady (lovely high heels). I find the selections fantastic and better every year. I especially like the personalization that I have been able to place on each ornament. I hope my grand kids place these ornaments on their own Christmas trees someday and know each will bring back fond memories. Ann F."

7/25/2014 - "I buy ornaments for family members each year to represent a memorable event for them. I buy most of them at the Ornament Shop because they almost always have ornaments that fit the bill. I really appreciated the 20% off sale. The quality is excellent. I especially like the personalization. Barrie F."

12/1/2014 - "This was my first time ordering. I am very pleased with the ornament and impressed with the fast delivery. Thank you very much.? Pauline B"

5/16/2014 - "WOW Dianne! I received the order today (already!) and I am so pleased with all of the ornaments. Thank you for making the correction for me, it certainly is appreciated. Nona H."

8/4/2014 - "DEBBIE, they arrived!!!! The ornaments arrived safe and sound, who ever packs them needs a BIG Good Job! I am not sure what part of the OrnamentShop shopping I like the Best....spending hours looking at ALL the selections until I find I right one for each grandchild or opening the package when they arrived like today, so HAPPY with each and everyone of them. I have to say Debbie of course working with you is on the top of the list. It is too bad that the ornaments do not show their true colors and the quality of workmanship browsing online....the actual item is much superior! The detail of each ornament is over the TOP. Thank you so very much....it was Christmas in July at my house today, plus 4 days of course being August 4. Best Regards, Suzanna LaG."

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."
