San Francisco Marathon Global Virtual Race

  The Embarcadero     09 Apr 2024

When Pheidippides huffed and puffed his way from Marathon to Athens on that fateful day in 490BC, did he realise that he was doing a little more than simply relaying (see what we did there?) surprising news of the end of a battle? Did he know that the journey that brought about his death would become a staple of global competition? We won’t speculate on whether that brings any solace to Big P’s ancestors, but we shall also contradict that and say that the boy would almost certainly be pleased with his legacy. To get to the bottom of it all, we must travel 5,657.67 miles (not as Pheidippides did, thankfully) to San Francisco, where a technological revolution aims to bring together the marathon runners of the world.
