The First Marathon

The name Marathon originates from the legend of Pheidippides. Marathon competitors should be able to run 24 miles. In 1972, the Boston marathon became the first marathon to allow girls to compete.

  1. What a long way to run.
    Our Cross Country Training is 1/2 a kilometer, we would have to do 80 of our runs to do a marathon!
