What is Marathon Running Race and When was it Started?

February 8, 2016

What is Marathon Running Race and When was it Started?

We know very well about Olympic Games. One of the Games of Olympic is Marathon running race. I was questioned long ago what the Marathon running was. If there ‘what the Marathon running is’ question raise, automatically along with it another question raise that ‘when the Marathon running started’. To know about it we should go to know the history little bit.

In 490 BC, Pheidippides, a Greek soldier, to tell the victory news to their country people, came by running twenty five miles from the Marathon to the Athens when Greeks had defeated Persians.

That was the history which we should know. Now let us go to the topic.

In memory of Pheidippides, in the occasion of reopening the Olympic Games in Greek, in 1896, long running, set up. This long running is Marathon Running race.

First Marathon running race conducted in 1896.

In many distances Marathon running race is held now. But, in 1924, distance of Olympic Marathon running race extended to 42,195 meters.

In brief, this is about Marathon running race and little bit history of it. I have written this brief article, so that everybody to be aware of everything.
