Best Answer

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.
