Due to its historical significance, the Greek hosts wanted to win the marathon above all else.
Spyridon Louis set off from the city of Marathon and took the lead four kilometres from the finish line and, to the joy of the 100,000 spectators, won the race by more than seven minutes.
The Games attracted athletes from 14 nations, with the largest delegations coming from Greece, Germany, France and Great Britain.
First place winners were awarded a silver medal, an olive branch and a diploma.
Those in second place were given a copper medal, a branch of laurel and a diploma.
Alongside the performances on the bandstand there were plenty of other things to enjoy, including a dance workshop and a samba parade coordinated by Rhythms of the City that took the audience right up to the bandstand.
The event was further brought to life by storytelling sessions provided by Hounslow libraries, drumming and instrument-making workshops and a magical sing-along show.
Hajos later confessed that his “will to live completely overcame [his] desire to win”.
