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!

7/28/2016 - "I love the Ornament Shop! Their website is easy to use and I always find what I'm looking for even though sometimes I'm not sure what I'm looking for. I buy ornaments for my children every year and try and find something that applies to events or successes they have had during the year. Ornament Shop has such a great selection and wide variety of ornaments. I also love their personalization. It looks so good and makes my gifts extra special. I have always received my purchase quickly, especially considering it is personalized. It is packaged very well as the product is fragile and could be broken easily. I highly recommend Ornament Shop and will use them again for my ornaments. Marilee P."
