What's the ultimate running distance, the ultimate word related to running,the ultimate goal, the most famous of all distances?
I would say the 'marathon'.
The biggest race with the biggest race day crowds, that brings thousands and thousands of spectators to the city streets.
Everyone can name the fastest man over 100m, but how many out there can name the worlds fastest man over the most famous distance of them all?
The world record holder for the 100m has 3.5 million followers on Twitter.
The fastest man in the world to run the famous 26.2 miles has just 2300 followers.
The wonderful world of sponsorship and celebrity!
