Athens Marathon

Athens Marathon

The story tells that in 490 BC ten thousand Greek soldiers faced the attack of an army of more than forty thousand Persians. The first sent one of their own, Pheidippides, to Sparta for help. In his career he received from the god Pan the secret to win such an unequal battle. It took place in the bay of Marathon and the victory of the Greeks was decisive. Marathons celebrate this fact, since its inclusion in the modern Olympics in 1896. The current measure of each of these sporting events, 26.219 miles / 42,195 kilometers, was established in the London Olympics 1908 and represents the distance that separates Windsor City from the White City Stadium in London. The Athens marathon is hard, forcing participants to overcome constant ups and downs from the exit near the town of Marathon, until reaching the Panathinaikos Stadium, unique in the world as made entirely of marble.
