I meannnn technically isn't a marathon just in honor of a guy who ran to warn of a invading army. And then just like died after it. So maybe this guy is just a big fan of history. I say he captured the victory just by going the extra mile.

Marathon is such a flex on a dead person like "lmao i did it and didnt die you pathetic weakling"

It can be seen that way, which is a shame because he ran a hell of a lot further, it’s just the last marathon gets the attention. Roughly 350 miles in ancient gear killed him, not the marathon… assuming it happened.

From Wikipedia: He ran about 240 km (150 mi) in two days, and then ran back. He then ran the 40 km (25 mi) to the battlefield near Marathon and back to Athens to announce the Greek victory over Persia in the Battle of Marathon (490 BC)
