14 Marathons to Do in 2014

Marathons vary as widely as the runners who complete them—luckily, distance runners can be selective about the 26.2-mile events they choose. There are events with singletrack trails, a descent into a canyon and picture-perfect views of mountain peaks for the nature-loving athlete. For fast folks chasing Boston qualifiers, there are flat, quick courses across the country with plenty of competition. And for those who want to enjoy the journey, there are races with beachfront finishes and post-race parties, a course that celebrates the Kentucky Derby and a football-football-football event that takes place at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
