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.
A very unique ornament and I was very happy with the quality and the care they took in shipping it!

10/10/2016 - "I found this site browsing to replace 2 ornaments that had broken and a Florida ornament I didn't have. Your site was wonderful. So many different styles and choices. The ornaments arrived safely and well packed. I am very happy with my purchases. The Chicago suitcase is much nicer than the one I had. I probably will not order more before Christmas but will definitely return after when I can take my time looking as I saw some I would like to make as gifts for next year. Thank you, Kathy S."
