About the Marathon
According to the Greek history, the first marathon commemorated the run of the soldier Pheidippides from a battlefield near the town of Marathon, Greece, to Athens in 490 B.C to announce the defeat of the Persians to some anxious Athenians. Customary as a tribute to an Ancient Greek legend, the Olympics made the marathon the universal participatory sports today. Running a marathon is one of the most challenging and rewarding events that any of us will experience and offers a great opportunity to meet new people and build lasting friendships. The marathon takes us up to, and beyond, the limit of human endurance, into an unknown zone where we confront our true selves, and discover our inner strengths and limits. The fact that exercise requires planning, application, dedication and discipline means that it can help to improve character development. The marathon distance is elegantly set to take us beyond our comfort zone, into a territory in which we confront the limitations of our bodies and our minds. There are no short cuts, no easy ways out.
