### How long dose it take to run a marathon?

This depends on if you are really walking the entire way or throwing in occasional running. If you run a little, figure anywhere between 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 hours for a beginner. If you walk exclusively, expect 6 - 8 hours for a beginner. Note that you'd want to check the cut off times for races in big cities because they will usually open up the course for traffic in the 6 - 7 hour time frame. More experienced walkers can finish a marathon in the 5 1/2 to 6 hour range. Anything faster than 5 1/2 hours would be considered competitive race walking speeds and is actually harder to maintain physically than running.
