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,

6/13/2015 - "The Post Office truck glass ornament is outstanding! It is one of the presents I'm already looking forward to giving on Christmas to my son-in-law who is a mailman. He will love it! I wish all the ornaments could have a choice of hair color. My children are blonde and my son-in-law has black hair. That would be outstanding. Jan A."

11/11/2015 - "To Your Entire Staff: THANK YOU! May I just say I am blown away by your service. I placed this order at the end of last week and all the information on your site suggested it might take 2-5 days to ship, not on weekends, and then another 2-5 days via USPS to arrive. It arrived today. And it could not have come at a better time for me personally, as it is a gift for my wife who really needed the pick me up (this item is very reminiscent of something she had as a child). The speed with which you processed and got my order to USPS is simply amazing, and while I do not do a lot of OrnamentShop item-related purchasing, come this holiday season I am thinking about doing ALL of my shopping with your web-store because you are simply that amazing. So please, tell your entire staff they are doing an amazing job and just made the day/week/probably month of a very nice lady who really needed it. They also made me a very happy man as well. Keep doing what you are doing, you are all great! Thanks so much. Dan C"
