The Marathon
The marathon is an individual running event that is generally held on the road over a distance of 42.195 kilometres.
The marathon was created for the 1896 Athens Olympic Games, based on an idea by French linguist Michel Bréal, to commemorate the legend of the Greek messenger Philippides, who would have covered the distance from Marathon to Athens to announce the victory against the Persians in 490 BC. The event ran until 1921 over an unspecified distance of about 40 km before the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) set the distance.
The marathon is an event that, over the years, has become more and more popular with amateur runners.
