Did you know: The Marathon event was increased from around 25 miles to 26.2 miles at the London 1908 Olympic Games, so the race could finish in front of the Box where members of the British Royal Family were sitting. The length of the Marathon remains 26.2 miles to this day.
Olympic History: Athletics was on the programme of the Games of the I Olympiad, Athens 1896, and has remained on the programme since then. Twelve men’s events were on the programme of the first Games, and twice as many at the Games of the XXVIII Olympiad, Athens 2004. Women were authorised to compete in athletics events for the first time at the 1928 Amsterdam Games, with five events. The women’s programme currently includes 23 events.
