Marathon is a town in the Florida Keys of the southernmost United States, located 132 miles south of Miami. The town itself is scattered across a plethora of small keys.

The town was founded in 1820 when workers stayed there to build the Florida East Coast Railroad. It was only officially made a city, however, in 1999.

Today, it is known for its location in the Keys, as a vacation spot, for its hotels, beaches and tropical beauty, and tranquil atmosphere.
