A full marathon is the 26.2 miles that you run for example the London marathon is a full marathon
I know a 14 year old that ran the full marathon.
Yes, there is a half marathon. A half marathon is about 13.1 miles long, half the distance of a full marathon, 26.2 miles.
There are 26.2 miles in a full marathon, thus there are 13.1 miles in a half marathon. No odd calculations... a half marathon is a half marathon.
It is 42.2 kilometres.
The half marathon is 21.0975 kilometers.The marathon is defined as 42.195 kilometers. All related values are derived from this definition. The marathon distance in miles is about 26.2 miles. The half marathon (sometimes called a mini marathon) is 21.0975 kilometers, or about 13.1 miles. Usually, the distances are referred to as 42.2 and 21.1 kilometers for the full and half marathon respectively.
If you saw this on a bumper sticker on the back of a car, 26.2 is the number of miles in a full marathon. So, if someone has a sticker on the back of their car saying this, they have probably completed a full marathon.
Fastest Time: 2:03:02 Geoffrey Mutai (4/18/11 Boston Marathon)
The Virgin London Wheelchair Marathon is a race for disabled people which requires participants to complete a full marathon (26 miles and 385 yards) before 3.5hrs or less.
There is just one full marathon that consists of 26.2 miles. Due to the popularity of the race, the marathon has been spit into a half marathon and today many runners enjoy running half the distance 13.1 miles. The half marathon does not carry the same prestige of a marathon, and is often thought as a preparatory race for a marathon. I hope i have answered your question.
