Discover Marathon

The Town of Marathon is located right along the famous Lake Superior Circle Tour Route. Marathon is 904 km/540 miles east of the geographic centre of Canada. Easily accessible, Marathon is located just off Highway 17, the Trans Canada Highway.

When visiting Marathon, the great outdoors and surrounding wilderness await the enthusiast. In addition to the traditional pastimes of hunting and fishing, there are opportunities for canoeing / kayaking, hiking, golf, cross country and alpine skiing,  snowmobiling, wildlife and bird watching, camping and much, much more.

"Quality of Life" is a Marathon trademark. As you review our website, you will be awakened to Marathon's many amenities and realize why Marathon is a great place to visit.  In fact, we'd like to offer you our Superior Hospitality Promise.
