Marathon Challenge: Want to complete a marathon but not all on the same day? The YMCA's Marathon Challenge starts on September 1. The challenge is to complete the Marathon distance, 26.2 miles, by September 19. This will allow people that don't have time to train for a marathon to run a little each day to complete the challenge.
