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!


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 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, Ornamentshop.com

10/25/2016 - "Over the years, I have bought several personalized ornaments from Ornament Shop. I've loved every one! They have all come quickly, they're beautiful, and the personalizing is perfect. With this particular ornament, the baby's name was spelled wrong. I checked my invoice (it was correct), and contacted Dianne by email. She immediately emailed back, and within a week, I had a beautiful, properly personalized ornament. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE! One little mistake, addressed and made right, and I will definitely buy from Ornament Shop again! Lisa"

11/17/2016 - "I'm very pleased with your service. I ordered an ornament late Sunday night around midnight, complete with my daughter's cat's name inscribed on it, and the ornament was delivered on Thursday. I was amazed. The ornament is beautiful, and it even resembles the cat I bought it for. But the best part is, the ornament advertised in your online catalog was inscribed "Buster". And my daughter's cat is named Buster! How could I pass that up? Thank you again for your prompt delivery service, and good quality ornament. Satisfied Customer"
