    From a marketing standpoint, XC is shorter but faster rides, around two hours of lung-busting effort. Marathon is longer, 4-5 hours... But really, unless you race, it doesn't really matter. XC, All-Mountain, Marathon, for me it's all about riding fun trails, climbing, descending, rocks, roots, mud, short rides, fast rides, long rides... I don't care what it's called, as long as I'm having fun and pushing my abilities and physical condition. Next summer, I plan to do races, then I'll care...
