    BEIJING (ANA-MPA) -- ‘he Greek embassy here distributed informational flyers on Sunday to some 30,000 participants of the 30th annual Beijing Marathon, a week before the Athens Marathon coincides with the 2,500th anniversary of the eponymous Battle of Marathon.

    The Chinese-language flyers featured a map of the "Classical Marathon" route used for the Athens event, photos of ancient Greek vases depicting runners, the Tumulus of Marathon and even postcard images of the first modern Olympic Games of 1896 in Athens, as well as a brief history of the landmark Battle of Marathon in 490 BC.

    Greek ambassador to China Theodoros Georgakelos spoke at the inauguration on the significance of the ancient battle.
