Description/Abstract

This article makes a case for sports historians to use fieldwalking as a methodology, and suggests a variety of influences - from heritage, local history, military history, and the flâneur tradition - that can be drawn on to make connections between sport and landscape. It uses a case study of the route of the 1908 Olympic Marathon.
