Nike!
After the Battle of Marathon the victorious Greek forces sent the Greek soldier Pheidippides back to Athens. Upon entering the City he uttered 1 word "Nike" Victory. He then supposedly dropped dead. The distance was 26.5 miles thus giving us both the distance of the modern marathon and one of it's major sponsors.
