Question

The first modern Olympics in 1896 had a marathon distance of 40 km. In 1908, for the Olympic marathon in London, the length was changed to 42.195 km to provide the British royal family with a better view of the race. This distance was adopted as the official marathon length in 1921 by the International Amateur Athletic Federation. What is the official length of the marathon in miles?
