Marathon Christmas Ornament

Personalized Christmas Ornament


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.

NOTE: We only bill to/ship to customers with a U.S. address and credit card.





Designate the Year

Putting the year on an ornament nicely commemorates your special gift.

If you want the year included, & there’s no box showing where we’d place it on the front of the ornament, use the drop down box and select the year. We’ll add it on the front if possible; otherwise we'll put it on the back


Now you can get this ornament gift wrapped with a personalized gift card attached! Or, if you just need to let that special someone know who the gift is from, choose the personalized gift card option!

We personalize your ornament just the way you request, so please carefully review your information. Once your order is placed, we are unable to cancel, change personalization, combine orders or make exchanges.

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 5000 Christmas ornaments to choose from, each personalized with a name or special greeting from you!
Sincerely, Dianne Weller — Owner,

7/15/2015 - "Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the ornaments and workmanship. The personalization was perfect and put on the ornaments with thoughtfulness to be sure they were centered and spelled correctly. I left the placement of the year up to them and again, was not disappointed. Great shopping experience from start to finish. Susan M"

7/21/2015 - "I received my product and although totally pleased there was a mistake in the date that was not my fault. I sent an email that evening and it was answered immediately and a replacement shipped right out. It is difficult to get that type of customer service from a 24 hour customer service phone line let alone an email only response center. Very impressed. Will order again with total confidence. Clara"

10/24/2014 - "Just have to say what an outstanding job your company does. You always have the best selection of ornaments and I'm so extremely pleased with the personalization. I placed a large order back in the summer. You had just the right ornaments for everyone and they were all perfectly personalized. Having an exchange student join our family last school year and another one this year, I recently purchased the same ornaments for this year's student as I did last year. I like to get an ornament for our tree as a remembrance of each student, and an ornament for them to take back home. The rolling suitcase has worked wonderfully for them, and I love being able to fit what I want the personalization to say without having to count characters! You make this part of Christmas preparation so wonderfully easy for me! Thanks so much and keep up the great work! Regina F."
