With great joy the Greeks defeated the Persians at the battle of Marathon. Pheidippides was sent as a messenger to deliver the good news to the people of Athens.

Over rocky mountains Phidippides was running from Marathon to Athens to send a message to the Athens.   Philippidess never give up and he ran 42.2 kilometres. It was frustrating for Pheidippides to run the marathon because it was so cold and he had no water.

Arriving in Athens as Pheidippides shouted “joy, we won!” .  He then passed away because he had no water and no food.
