Athens Marathon, 10 Nov 2019

Athens Marathon, 10th of November 2019

Dear Runner,
It was September 490BC when one of the greatest battles ever held took place in the planes of Marathon, north of Athens, in Greece. During that battle a small force of 10.000 Greek soldiers fought and defeated the mighty Persian army, thus preventing Greece from being conquered by the Persians. One single messenger, Pheidippides, undertook the task of running the 42km distance to Athens to announce the great victory in the Battle of Marathon in which he had just fought! It is said that he ran the entire distance without stopping and burst into the assembly, exclaiming “nenikekamen” (we won), before collapsing and dying.
