This is the true story of 3 marathons and an odyssey. The Athens marathon is held in November each year. Home of the marathon, home of the legend. It is run on the original marathon course of the 1896 Olympics - from Marathon to Athens, finishing in the Panathinaikon Olympic Stadium in the centre of Athens. Two months later in early January, Walt Disney World hosts the Goofy Challenge - run the half marathon around Disney World on the Saturday and you get a Donald Duck medal. Do the Full marathon on the Sunday and you get a Mickey Mouse medal. Complete both and you get a Goofy medal. To many people it doesn't get much better than that. "Always lucid and enjoyable" writes Roger Robinson; "Comes alive ... constant sense of humour ... clean, clear writing style", notes Marathon and Beyond editor Rich Benyo.
