Marathon Runners (6)
A Long, Arduous Route
A marathon is a special challenge for athletes. They have to run 42 kilometres in one go. Many marathon runners train for an event like this for a whole year.
They must be continuously fit in order to keep up with this goal. Legend tells that during a battle in Ancient Greece, a messenger ran from the town of Marathon to Athens to announce the victory of the Athenians. This was about 40 kilometres. This messenger collapsed upon arrival in Athens and dropped dead.
The Figures Set “Marathon Runners” contains 6 figures. Three of these marathon runners are female and three are male. They are all wearing running gear. Four figures are jogging; one of them is already triumphantly stretching his arms up. Two more figures are standing. One woman is bending over an exhausted man, trying to motivate him to keep running. While he is resting his arms on his knees from exhaustion.
This Figures Set is ideal for bringing the popular, famous sport event to your model layout.
Are you choosing figures for an arts and crafts project?
OO/HO gauge offers the best range and variety of figures on the market. We want your project to be a great success and we are sure you will be delighted with your purchase, but please be aware that the average OO/HO gauge figure measures 2cm in height. If you require something a little larger, O gauge (approximately 4cm tall) or G scale (approximately 8cm tall) may provide you with a great solution.
