2013--Record Year for Marathon Finishers

Posted on 31 March 2014

 

2013 saw a record number of marathon finishers across the US. Over 541,000 runners completed marathons, that's right, over 541,000.

We will give you a moment to let that number sink-in.... 

According to Sports One Source, 57% of the finishers were men (308,400) and 43% of the finishers were female (232,600). Record highs for both demographics. And according to recent data, the majority of marathoners are between the ages of 25-54 with median race times of 4:16:24 (male) and 4:41:38 (female).

So bravo, America! Let's lace up those shoes, strap on the Soleus, and get moving towards another record breaking year.
