How the marathon distance was set to 42,195 meters or 26 miles and 385 yards ?
In 1908 London Olympic games, the British Royal Family wanted the race to begin beneath the windows of the nursery at Windsor Castle and finish opposite the royal viewing box at the Olympic stadium. The start and finish lines were adapted to accommodate the request, and since then the marathon distance was standardized to that distance- 42 kilometers and 195 meters (42.195 km) or 26 miles and 385 yards (26.219 miles).
