The Boston Marathon matters in a way other sporting events simply do not.
It started in 1897, inspired by the first modern marathon, which took place
at the inaugural 1896 Olympics. It attracts 500,000 spectators and over
20,000 participants from 96 countries.<http://www.greenleft.org.au/node/53884>
