On April 11, 1996 in Boston, MA., on the 100th anniversary of the Boston Marathon the USPS issued this stamp to honor all marathons. The contemporary design, which features a stylized runner with wings sprouting from his feet, was inspired by the Greek legend of Hermes. A messenger of the gods, Hermes was often depicted wearing winged sandals.
