If you are interested in history, in general, you’d know the story.
We, Cairo Runners, are interested in the history of Marathon specifically, so we are unfolding the story of the marathon today. Back in 490 B.C., the Athenians had defeated the invading Persians. After the great defeat, they sent a messenger from the city of Marathon to Athens to announce the victory.
Care to venture a guess about the distance? Correct! Roughly 26 MILES RUN.
