As with many British participants heading to France for the Paris marathon our long weekend began at St. Pancreas station in London as we awaited the Eurostar to take us straight to the centre of Paris.

The Athens Marathon; The Authentic, #2

Words by Laura Kimberley, photos by Lamia Hossain When we were offered the opportunity to attend the Athens Marathon, in true history geek mode I was completely ecstatic. This was the marathon. It was where Pheidippides, a messenger from the Greek army, ran from Marathon to Athens to give news of the Greek victory against the Persian invaders.

In 490BC…
