Running a marathon is something most people will never achieve, but for those starting out as runners, a great initial goal to aim for is to try to run the length of a marathon over a two week period. A marathon is 26.2 miles or 42.2km. How you break this down is up to you - you could do two 5km routes and one longer 11km run per week, or four runs of just over 5km, or perhaps you'd prefer to run every day, in which case your routes would only need to be 3km.

“this one was relatively easy for me, since I spent the past year training for a marathon (26.2 mi). Circuit training was the best to track progress and better judge distance/time...well worth it. 36 mi this past week.”
