Marathon is unique in many respects. Being an industrial, service and retail hub on the north shore of Lake Superior midway between Sault Ste. Marie and Thunder Bay, Marathon is uniquely positioned to provide a plethora of business opportunities. Coupled with the vast boreal forest and mineral deposits surrounding the community, Marathon is well established and ready for continued growth and prosperity.

The great outdoors and the surrounding wilderness await the enthusiast. In addition to the traditional pastimes of hunting and fishing, there are opportunities for white water canoeing, sea kayaking, golf, cross-country skiing, hiking, exploring Pukaskwa National Park, snowmobiling and much more. Marathon also has excellent indoor recreation facilities including the Port Hole Pool, Marathon Arena and the Marathon Theater.

Marathon's quality of life is second to none. Its modern telecommunications infrastructure, excellent health and social services, retail shopping, abounding recreation opportunities, and its friendly people, make Marathon a genuinely unique community.
