The National Hellenic Society (NHS) and National Hellenic Museum (NHM) programmatic collaboration on the traveling exhibit, The Spirit of the Marathon, was showcased at St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church’s annual festival from September 16-18, 2016 in Las Vegas, NV. The exhibit traces the history and impact of Marathon from its ancient roots, when the Greek herald, Pheiddippides, after a grueling 26.2 mile run, proclaimed victory over the Persians; defeat would have been an end to Athenian democracy and would have changed history.
