Did they run in the same footsteps as Pheidippides?
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

This is the route established by archeologists and used at first 1896 olymbic games.
Still there is an argument for another road that goes up the mountain and comes down fm the north side but that is not an easy route, still evidence of its existance are present even today, Info only for for historical justification.
A small video will follow (awaiting clearence).

There are several close ups courtesy of the white camera van, its there alright, many times found myself cruising next to athletes in the other lane in order to get a better look of situation , but close to the times provided am clearly vissible especially the last minutes of race, so yes am talking about running time sorry.

Assuming that is a Sargent seat (cos it looks like one) then it will probably be the Sargent seat backrest  8)
