Sub 4 Hour Marathon

It is not a big accomplishment to finish a marathon in less than four hours. But it does take some preparation.

In most mayor marathons the average time for finishing a marathon is above 4 hours. But remember these races also attracts people in costumes and other people who do not try to run the entire 42,195 km. marathon.
