The Town of Marathon is located in Thunder Bay district, Ontario, Canada, on the north shore of Lake Superior north of Pukaskwa National Park, in the heart of the Canadian Shield. Personal residences encompass an area starting from Lake Superior, and stretch out to a new subdivision near Penn Lake, an in-town campsite and beach in the eastern portion of the town.

The Pic River is located outside of the town's eastern limits. The town is adjacent to the Peninsula Harbour and has several coves including Carden Cove, Sturdee Cove and Craddock Cove, all three located west-northwest of Marathon. Penn Lake is a local lake within the town where tourists can enjoy camping and water sports. Marathon has a children's park named after Del Earle, one of the town's founders. There are numerous hotels in the town, including Travelodge, Harbour Inn, Peninsula Inn, Wayfare Inn and the Zero 100 Motor Inn. Marathon has a challenging 9 hole golf course, Cross-country skiing trails and down hill skiing, and the only indoor swimming pool between Thunder Bay and Sault Ste. Marie.
