Marathon Kings  

Giller, N (1983), 'Marathon Kings,' Pelham Books, London, UK 

Paperback = 96 pages 
Condition = Fair secondhand 

The Marathon. The Greatest Race on Earth. It has become much more than just an athletics event. The 'Big City' runs have transformed the marathon into a festival of fun and achievement. 

Here for the first time, Norm Giller tells the absorbing story of the lite of the event, the kings and queens of the road who by their stamina, speed and endurance have written glorious pages in the history of marathon running. 

The long-running saga of the marathon is told from the 1896 Olympics and the triumph of the Greek shepherd Spiridon Louis right up to the fantastic exploits of Alberto Salazar, three times winner of the New York City marathon in the 1980s. 

Stunningly illustrated this volume gives an insight to the champions of the race and captures their greatest moments. 

The Marathon once considered the private territory of the people, with literally tens of thousands brought to their feet for what they regard as the ultimate sporting challenge: to finish a marathon.
