Running a marathon is the ultimate distance running challenge. Completing a marathon is an accomplishment that only a small percentage of people can manage. Just entering the marathon requires a runner to endure months of training if they hope to finish. We recognize and commend these runners for the time and effort they put into this personal challenge.
