{{अनुवाद}}When the idea of a modernआधुनिक [[Olympicओलंपिक Gamesखेल|Olympicsओलंपिक]] becameका विचार जब १९वीं सदी के अंत में वास्तविकता बना तो आयोजक इसे लोकप्रिय बनाने के लिए प्राचीन यूनान के गौरव के जरिए इसे लोकप्रिय करने के तरीके खोज रहे थे।became a reality at the end of the 19th century, the initiators and organizers were looking for a great popularizing event, recalling the ancient glory of Greece. The idea of organizing a marathon race came from [[Michel Bréal]], who wanted the event to feature in the [[1896 Summer Olympics|first modern Olympic Games]] in 1896 in Athens. This idea was heavily supported by [[Pierre de Coubertin]], the founder of the modern Olympics, as well as the Greeks. The Greeks staged a selection race for the Olympic marathon on March 10, 1896 that was won by [[Charilaos Vasilakos]] in 3 hours and 18 minutes (with the future winner of the introductory Olympic Games marathon coming in fifth). The winner of the [[Athletics at the 1896 Summer Olympics – Men's marathon|first Olympic Marathon]], on April 10, 1896 (a male-only race), was [[Spiridon Louis|Spiridon "Spiros" Louis]], a Greek water-carrier. He won at the Olympics in 2 hours 58 minutes and 50 seconds.
The women's marathon was introduced at the [[1984 Summer Olympics]] ([[Los Angeles]], [[United States|USA]]) and was won by [[Joan Benoit]] of the United States with a time of 2 hours 24 minutes and 52 seconds.<ref>{{Cite web|url=http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/3/3_1/olympic-champion-joan-ben.shtml |title=Olympic Champion Joan Benoit Samuelson To Be Guest of Honor at Manchester Marathon&nbsp;— Registration Closed |publisher=Cool Running |date= |accessdate=2009-08-22}}</ref>
