A Marathon is a running event over a distance of 26.2 miles, or 42.2km. Running a marathon is often seen as one of the main goals in a runner's lifetime. Completing one is a real achievement of mental and physical resilience. If you want a time that you can brag about to your mates, you'll need to put in a serious amount of commitment and training. Several major cities in Australia host marathons, and these events often draw big crowds and inspirational atmospheres. The Sydney Marathon at the annual Sydney Running Festival takes runners past some of Australia's most famous landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Other marathons might take you out of the city and make the most of Australia's stunning scenery. The Gold Coast Marathon is one of the most famous running events in Australia, and is a great way to see some incredible views while also achieving something incredible. Marathons are also amazing fundraising opportunities if you're feeling charitable. The Sydney Running Festival raises over $1.5million each year.
