US Marathons 2024 - 2025

Marathons are a bucket list goal for most runners across America. The 26.2 miles (42km) is a huge achievement, but short enough to be possible by most people - after a lot of hard training - but definitely long enough and tough enough to make running marathons one of life's most memorable experiences.

From small, locally organized marathons, to the biggest races in the USA, attracting tens of thousands of runners, the findarace event calendar is the most comprehensive and is the easiest way to find your next great challenge.
