If you had unlimited money, time to train, and vacation time from work, what races would you run?
1. Marathon De Paris Paris is my favorite city and any excuse to go, I would take. This race starts on the Champs-Elysees and goes across the city, hitting most of the big landmarks.
2. Athens Marathon I have never been to Greece, so that’s one big fat reason. Another reason is the history.
According to legend, it covers the same ground that the Athenian messenger Phiedippides ran when he brought news of victory from the battlefield of Marathon 2,500 years ago. When you run the Athens Marathon, you run in the very footsteps of the ancient gods and heros that gave birth to western civilization. The finish line is in Athens’ magnificent Olympic Stadium, the birthplace of the modern Olympic Games. (From the Athens Marathon site)
What could be cooler than ending a race in Olympic Stadium?
3. The Great Wall Marathon It is amazingly beautiful and such a unique, once in a lifetime experience.
4. Inca Trail to Machu Picchu Marathon A marathon in the mountains that starts in a famed lost city and takes you past ruins and fortresses from a great civilization.
