The Gielinor Marathon is a 10 part marathon taking place throughout Gielinor. Players will be competing to reach 5 checkpoints in a row. Various prizes will be awarded, depending on the speed of competition.

Running in the Marathon[edit source]

You must equip a Terrorbird mount from the Summer Beach Party. At every location, there will be at least one ET Member or Assistant waiting. You must send a trade request to them before moving to the next location. If there are two listed, only trade with the first. Your placement will be announced in the event chat, for your convienence. The winner is the first person to send a trade request to Juan Luis at Edgeville, having sent a trade request with every ET member at every prior location.
