Summary
  • Relates the story of the young Greek runner who ran 280 miles from Athens to Sparta and back to warn the Greeks of the approach of the Persians before the Battle of Marathon, a feat remembered in the first marathon run in the 1896 Olympics.
  • Twenty-five hundred years ago, a small band of Greeks faced the huge Persian army. Given the horrendous odds, help was a necessity, so a young runner named Pheidippides ran 140 miles to Sparta to request aid, and then ran back to report that the Spartans were on their way. The story is set out clearly within the context of the tale, and illustrated with colorful drawings
