Introduction  A New York-based stockbroker, Timothy P. Higgins enjoys training for marathons and has competed in numerous courses. As Timothy Higgins will be the first to advise, running a marathon is a major undertaking. Why not train for and compete in one of the world’s best marathons? Below are four of the finest.

The Marathons  1. Athens Classic Marathon: International travelers should consider running in this race, which follows the course that inspired the marathon idea millennia ago. The path begins near Marathon and takes runners toward Athens on a steady incline. 2. The Great Wall Marathon: Visit China’s most famous landmark and complete a 26.2-mile run by signing up for this race, which tends to take about 50 percent longer than a normal marathon due to more extreme elevations and descents.

Conclusion  3. Paris Marathon: Runners enjoy beautiful scenery as they take off from the Champs- Élysées and pass some of the city’s most famed structures on the way to the finish line at the Arc de Triomphe. 4. New York City Marathon: Though not the most prestigious marathon in America (that distinction belongs to Boston), it is the country’s most popular, as it takes runners through all five boroughs of an exciting, well-loved city.
