A Long-Distance Relationship is in the News


Pictured: A Kyriakides wreath, handmade in Marathon, Greece, of olive branches from trees near the Tomb of the Athenians.

Buried in the tomb are soldiers who gave their lives in the Battle of Marathon more than 2,500 years ago.  Today, Kyriakides wreaths are placed on the heads of marathon winners throughout the world.

Three wreaths were recently created and shipped to Massachusetts. Two will crown the female and male winners of the 122nd running of the Boston Marathon on April 16th, 2018.  The third wreath, will be on view during the Attleboro Arts Museum’s “A Long-Distance Relationship: The 26.2 Mile Journey” exhibition from April 10th – May 5th. Once the exhibition closes the wreath will be permanently on display at a new elementary school, named The Marathon School, in Hopkinton, MA. 

Wreath provided by Dimitri Kyriakides and the 26.2 Foundation.
