                        History of how the Marathon began

1.Once upon a time Greeks were at war against the Persians in a town Marathon. Finally the war was over and greece won. The chief told one of his soldiers named Pheidippides to run back to Athens and say NIKI!!![victory] So off he went on his run from Marathon back to Athens when he got there he said Niki and drop dead.

2.That is how the marathon was invented. They do the Marathon to honour pheidippides in 1896.

3.They have to run the same distance Pheidippides ran. The Marathon is the last event in the olympic. It is filled with dramatic finishes and heroic feats.
