The Olympic Games.
The only event at the very first (classical) Olympic games was the Stadion foot race. A Stadion was about 200m, and women were not allowed to compete, so it would be fair to say that the Men's 200m is the oldest ongoing Olympic event, and therefore Athletics the oldest ongoing Olympic Sport.
The preparation for the Olympic Games depends on the event. However, years of intense preparation are usually necessary for any Olympic event.
The longest running games ever is attributed to one Robert Davies' Games, (actually spelled OLIMPICK Games) - the Games ran annually in Chipping Campden from 1612 to 1852 plus a resurrected games in 1951. This makes it the longest running games with 241 events. The Games always included the Main Event which was Shin Kicking! (OUCH!)
