How long is a marathon?

According to Marathon Training Expert… “The marathon is 26.2 miles or 41.2 kilometres in length and can take anywhere from 2 hours 4 minutes (Paul Tergat of Kenya) to 8 hours or more for some of the more unfit, older or less experienced runners…  Over 800 organised marathons take place each year in some of the most famous cities in the world such as London, New York, Athens, Stockholm to name just a few.”

Here is the Marathon Guide for upcoming events.  The Marathon World Directory has links to “541 marathon races in 65 countries and on all 7 continents.”
