    Oh dear....that is right....King Edward VII....

    Anyways it originally was supposed to be 40 kilometers....the Royals are still to blame....off with their head ....

    And the course was short to boot....

    "According to the book The Marathon Makers by John Bryant, the first mile of the 1908 Olympic Marathon course was remeasured by John Disley in the late 1990s and was found to be 174 yards (159 m) short."
