Mt Marathon Race

Organiser's Description

According to folklore …The tradition of the Mount Marathon Race began when two sourdoughs debated the possibility of climbing and descending the mountain in less than an hour. “Impossible” one said.
To settle the argument, and the resulting wager, a race was held, with the loser to furnish drinks for the crowd. Enterprising merchants put up a suit of clothes and other prizes for the winner and proposed the race take place on a holiday – why not the Fourth of July?
The optimistic sourdough lost his bet. The winning racer took one hour and two minutes.
