Best Answer

Marathons is plural for marathon, which refers to a running race that is about 26 miles (42 kilometers) long.

It also refers to something that lasts an extremely long time or requires great effort, such as an event or activity, or a contest in which people compete with each other to find out who can do something the longest amount of time
