Run the original

In 490 BC...


...the first battle for democracy was fought at the Greek village of Marathon. Though overwhelmingly out numbered by an invading Persian Army, the citizen-soldiers of Athens prevailed and in so doing allows the first democracy to be established and preserved the classical Greek way of life that became the foundation of western civilization.


Legend has it that, when the battle was won, the Athenian messenger Phidippides ran twenty-four miles to Athens, carrying news of that stunning victory. The modern marathon commemorates this feat.


The Athens Marathon is recognized as the original marathon course and was the same course for the 2004 Olympics held in Athens
