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!

10/30/2016 - "I love your ornaments! I order them for my kids every year. I get something different each year depending on what they are into. I love all the sports choices and personalization, as well as new ideas every year. Love the drivers license and the girl with the braces. I would love to see a new golf girl ornaments, or possibly the ability to change her golf bag color. Nicki J."

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"
