The Marathon was an automobile built by the Marathon Motor Works company in Nashville, Tennessee.[1] It was manufactured from 1911 to 1914 when financial difficulties forced the company to sell its machinery to another automaker in Indianapolis. Only eight examples of the car are known to still exist.[2]
