Description

In 490BC, as he ran to Athens on what was probably a very hot day, we suspect Pheidippides had no idea what an impact he was having on the future of long distance running. He was simply following orders and was delivering news of a famous victory by the Greeks over the Persians at a town called Marathon… Like all of us over this now famous distance, he gave it his all and pushed himself to the limit. He pushed himself so hard in fact that according to legend, he got to his destination, proclaimed “victory – we won!” then promptly died. Poor Pheidippides. But a legend was born and an iconic running event was created!
