September 12 Battle Was Seed of the Modern Marathon

oak.ctx.ly

September 12 is recognized as the commemoration date of the Battle of Marathon, which led a couple thousand years later to the creation of the modern marathon. Legend states that on this day in 490 B.C., Pheidippides, a Greek solider, ran for 25 miles from the battleground in Marathon to Athens to announce the Greek victory over the Persian army. Upon announcing the victory, Pheidippides allegedly collapsed and died.

Huge day for us marathoners!
