You've spent the last few months preparing for this. You've done the workouts. You've completed the half marathon
and twenty mile long run
. Now it's time for the main event!
Strava is challenging you to run 26.2 miles in a single run
, on any day between September 29th and November 3rd.
Whether you're registered for a specific event or starting from your driveway, lace up those shoes and show us what you're made of.
Extended Challenge Window
We have expanded the participation window for this Challenge to include both the last Sunday of September and the first Sunday in November. This will allow runners competing in the Berlin or New York marathons to upload their race efforts for the Challenge.
About the Marathon Training Series:
Whether you're training for an upcoming race or looking to set a new running goal, Strava is here to support with our Marathon Training Series.
The Marathon Training Series consists of three individual Challenges, with distances and scheduling designed to align with your existing training calendar. The half marathon (13.1 miles), long run (20 miles), and marathon (26.2 miles) Challenges are spread across approximately three months, giving you the tools and motivation you need to get to that finish line, set a PR, or run a marathon just for fun.
We're sorting the Leaderboard based on the average pace of the qualifying activity. This means the faster you run during your activity, the higher you will show up on the Leaderboard.
