According to legend, the first marathon was run by an ancient Greek soldier named Pheidippides. The year was 490 BC and the Persian army had moved into Greece coming to conquer. Fearing for their lives and their homeland, the city of Athens sent an army to meet the Persians outside the city of Marathon. Despite being heavily outnumbered, the Athenians were victorious. Following the battle Pheidippides ran the distance from the city of Marathon all the way back to the city of Athens, a distance of approximately 25 miles to deliver the good news of their victory over the Persians. Once he arrived in Athens, exhausted Pheidippides delivered his message saying, "Joy to you, we've won!", and then he collapsed on the ground and died on the spot.
