What is the Marathon™ font?
Marathon was originally designed by Rudolf Koch in 1931 for Schriftgiesserei Klingspor.
It is a roman with short ascenders and descenders. The serifs are small, but longer at the ends of the arms of E, F and L, M is rather splayed and is without top serifs, like M in other typefeaces designed by Rudolf Koch. The lowercase g has no link and an open tail, again like the g in other Koch types. U has the lower-case design. In the W the middle strokes cross, the lower case w has no middle serif. The figures are short-ranging. More…
Ute Harder from the Fachhochschule Hamburg had redesigned Marathon with the help and supervision of Professor Jovica Veljovic. She has added a book weight to offer more flexibility with this beautiful typeface.

You're probably thinking - Is Marathon™ available to Download for free?
The short answer is no. Marathon™ is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of Marathon™, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest. Just think how much time and effort you will save if you just pay for Marathon™ and be done with it.
It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Marathon™ is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Marathon™ and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Marathon™.
Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Marathon™ for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Marathon™ Download" you will see a lot of websites that will say "Free Download" but these are just attempts to get you to click on a link which will either take you to an ad landing page or you risk getting viruses on your computer. In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Marathon™ remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
