It all started with a Myth from ancient Greece. About the soldier Pheidippides, who run from Marathon to Athens to declare the victory over the persian army. After that he died.
The marathon is one of the most storied races of all time. Originally conceived as a race for the 1896 Olympics in Athens, the marathon immediately captured the imagination and hearts of the running public.
Before the Olympic race in 1896 a Greek Championship race was held from Marathon to Athens. This was the first Marathon race.
Transported to Boston in 1897 by American spectators, the history of the marathon in the new world is almost as long as the history of the marathon itself.
Apart from the Olympic Marathon and The Boston Marathon, there were other races established before the Second World War.After 1945 Marathons were started all over the world.
In 1982 a women's marathon was incorporated for the first time by the European Championships. The current marathon distance (26 mi., 385 yds.) was set for the 1908 London Olympics so that the course could start at Windsor Castle and end in front of the Royal Box. Not until 1921, however, was that distance adopted as the "official" Marathon distance by the IAAF.
