Who won the battle of Marathon?

Greeks
Persians
Nobody
There was no such battle
Ac­cord­ing to Herodotus, an Athenian runner named Phei­dip­pi­des was sent to run from Athens to Sparta (225 km, 140 miles) to ask for as­sis­tance before the battle. Then, fol­low­ing the battle, the Athenian army marched quickly the 40 km (25 miles) to Athens, in order to head off the Persian forces. Later these two events became confused with each other, leading to a leg­endary but in­ac­cu­rate story (first recorded by Plutarch in 1st century AD) of Phei­dip­pi­des running from Marathon to Athens after the battle, to announce the Greek victory.
