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 the USA host marathons, and these events often draw big crowds and inspirational atmospheres. The New York and LA Marathons are two of the most popular running events in the USA. Both are relatively flat courses, and so are great opportunities to qualify for the Boston marathon, which is one of the six world marathon majors. Marathons are also amazing fundraising opportunities if you're feeling charitable. For example, every year the Boston marathon raises over $35 million, so marathons are a great way to mix personal achievement with helping the world.
