The Marathon has always had a prominent place in the hearts and minds of athletes. It represents the ultimate athletic effort —where the human body, mind and soul are tested to their limits.
Many historians and philosophers consider the Battle of Marathon in 490 B.C. one of the most significant battles in human history; but the battle is perhaps now more famous as the inspiration for the modern marathon race.
For many fitness enthusiasts and runners starting and finishing a marathon is on their bucket list.
Established as a tribute to an Ancient Greek legend, the Olympics made the marathon the global participatory sport it is today.
On Sunday 29th January- the 35th Trinidad and Tobago International Marathon will start at the St Mary's Junction, Freeport and finish at Whitehall, Queens Park Savannah, Port of Spain. 26.2 miles.
For the third year- the T&T International Marathon (TTIM) will be an Olympic fundraiser.
