tcv chauntra marathon

tcv chauntra marathon The name ‘Marathon’ comes from the legend of Philippides or Pheidippides, the Greek messenger. The legend states that he was sent from the battlefield of Marathon to Athens to announce that the Persians had been defeated in the Battle of Marathon which took place in August or September, 490 B.C. It is said that he ran the entire distance without stopping and burst into the assembly, exclaiming, “We have won!” before collapsing and dying.

So in our school also marathon race is yet again one of the most exciting events in the school and everyone enjoys watching the athletes run. So to participate in it, we have four main divisions and they are the Senior Boys, Inter Boys, Junior Boys and the Girls’ Open division. As many as 180 students both girls and boys have participated in it.
