Best Answer

The marathon is a road race distance of exactly 42.195 km, as defined by the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF), the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS), and the Road Running Technical Council of USA Track & Field (RRTC/USATF). The conversion of this distance into Imperial units is approximately -- not exactly -- 26.21876 miles, a distance that is commonly rounded to 26.2 mile. The official length is 42.195 kilometres (26 miles and 385 yards)

It depends on the Marathon.
