Marathons have come to be a part of our fitness and running culture in recent times. Few people know that the Marathon dates back to the 490 B.C. The Marathon gets it's name in memory of the run of the soldier Pheidippides from a battlefield at the site of the town of Marathon, Greece, to Athens in 490 B.C. Legend has it that the soldier ran 42 kms to deliver the message of the army's victory and immediately collapsed and died on reaching his destination.
