When the modern Olympics began in 1896 in Athens, Greece, the marathon
distance was 24.85 miles (40 km), about the distance run by Pheidippides
from the Battle Of Marathon to Athens in 490 BCE. Between 1896 and the 1920
Olympics, the distance varied. In the 1908 Olympics in London, the marathon
distance of 26 miles was increased by 385 yards so the finish was directly
in front of the Royal Box. It was that distance that the IAAF set as the
official length of the marathon. That length was then run in the 1924
