Many athletes around the world enjoy the physical challenges of marathons and other track events. Apart from competition with other runners, the constant physical and mental joy of physical challenges and training draw many men and women into the sport.
The marathon goes all the way back to Phidippides, an Athenian runner during the period of Greek war with the Persian Empire, who ran 140 miles to the city of Marathon to fetch help for his outnumbered people. Victory was won that day and Phipiddides went on to perform other great feats of running. Eventually, the marathon race became an Olympic sport.
Today, marathons are held in many cities including London, Boston, Paris, Vancouver, China, South Africa, Athens and other destinations around the globe.
