CTC's Buckingham Canal Marathon, Oct 7th
We invite all to participate in CTC's first Marathon. [Wikipedia] The marathon is a long-distance running event with an official distance of 42.195 kilometres (26 miles and 385 yards), that is usually run as a road race. The event was instituted in commemoration of the fabled run of the Greek soldier Pheidippides, a messenger from the Battle of Marathon (the namesake of the race) to Athens.
The marathon was one of the original modern Olympic events in 1896, though the distance did not become standardized until 1921. More than 500 marathons are held throughout the world each year, with the vast majority of competitors being recreational athletes [CTC] CTC is organizing it's first 5km, 10km run, half marathon and full marathon on Sunday morning October 7th along the scenic Buckingham Canal just South of Chennai city.
