Erroneamente, la palabra maratón se utiliza para referirse a cualquier carrera de cualquier distancia. Un verdadero maratón son 26.2 millas o 42 km. Para cualquiera que corre, cada paso cuenta. Por favor, usemos la palabra correcta. El "maratón" de San Blas es un medio maratón, 13.1 millas, una diferencia significante que determina la decisión de un atleta participar. Using the word marathon to refer to road races of any distance is a euphemism. A marathon is 26.2 miles, 42 km. To anyone who runs, every step counts. Use the correct terminoligy, road race(s). The San Blas marathon is in fact a half marthon, a difference of 13.1 miles and for any runner who might consider it, a game changer.
