Around 490BC, the Persians and the Greeks had a war. A messenger called Pheidippedes was sent to Sparta to ask for help.
Pheidippedes ran all the way to Sparta to ask them for help in this war, but he was rejected. He had to run all the way back to Greece again.
The Persians invaded on their ships. There were around 48000 Persians but only 10000 Greek soldiers. It was a small chance that Greece would win.
The Greeks attacked from the side and confused the Persians. Taking advantage of this, the Greeks fought and fought, and they won! 6400 Persians died yet only 192 Greeks died.
The Persians tried to escape on their ships. The Greeks sent Pheidippedes to tell the Spartans the good news.
Pheidippides ran all the way to Sparta but died after he delivered the message. What Pheidippides did started a run we now call a 'marathon'. The first marathon of the Greek Olympics was won by a man called Spirodon Louis, who was also a messenger!
