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!

12/9/2016 - "I have been purchasing personalized ornaments for about 11 yrs. Started with baby's first Christmas ornament, to grad gifts and more ornaments. I get the kids whatever they are into that year. There's been camping, soccer, baseball, first day of school, jogging, these are so cool to look back and go, "remember when....". I even got when they traveled to NYC one year which was pretty awesome, and beach trip. Great memories with the ornaments dated with year. Janett S."
