noun - Ultra marathon (also called ultra distance) on land is any running event longer than the traditional marathon length of 42.195K (26.2188 miles). An ultra marathon swim is similarly defined as any swim longer than the recently accepted marathon swim distance of 10 kilometers (6.2 miles). However, different interpretations of the minimum distance of an ultra marathon swim vary between 15 kilometers, 25 kilometers and 20 miles (the distance of the English Channel and Catalina Channel).
