Mine are the next ten levels in my current city, but I'm blocked after the third until I have enough resources to build the monument. If your first marathon level is just after a monument, try to build that monument.

Where do you even find the marathon? There is nothing showing on my game to indicate where they are.

I'm unaware of the marathon levels. Can someone tell a bit about it?

Frans, the marathon should open in the city you’re currently working on. It’s about finishing 3 times so many levels and each time you finish one (bronze, silver, gold) you receive boost(s). I’ve read in the seniors that part of the final reward is an hour (?) of infinite lives, so If you have the event, plan ahead.

You have to build the monument. Once you do the path will open up and you can continue. To find the marathon use the tab in each city to select it.

I have completed Copenhagen on the weekend. Have done all cities previously. Is the reason I have not got the Marathon because I have no more monuments to build?

Hey folks,

As usual when it comes to special events it matters which format you are playing on (PC or mobile) I do not believe the marathon is available on a PC version of Gummy Drop so if some players are not seeing it that may be the reason. I play on PC and I thought I may get it because I did get an Everest Challenge after the latest update on PC versions of the game. I do not have any marathon though. Sigh.

Best regards
Glitter

I am on iOS and don't get it either. Think it is only available to those with cities left to complete.

Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to swim by real fast with some clarifications for the Marathon event, just in case they're helpful.

Players are encouraged to participate in the newest event in Gummy Drop! Players receive a reward after completing 3, 6, and 10 of the selected Marathon levels, which cover the next 10 levels you've unlocked in your current city that a player has not completed yet.

If a player is about to build a monument in their current city, we recommend building this monument as not building it may keep those event levels from appearing as expected. Players within the last 10 levels of their current city (generally 111 - 120) may not see the Marathon appear. The Marathon will appear for these players when the player has opened the first 10 levels of the next city in the game.

Thank you for your patience and I hope this helps clarify the Marathon event a little bit more. If there are further questions, don't hesitate to ask them here or to PM one of our active Moderators directly. We're all happy to listen and help out as best we can.

That's harsh on those who have completed all levels and are waiting for a new city to be released. The people who have dedicated the most time to GD are literally getting no reward.

I agree, especially considering I have been considering leaving the game because it is boring waiting for new cities. Was excited that there was something new to do but we don't get it.

Also you don't even mention the PC version of the game at all. It is inceasingly frustrating that these special events and features are never available to loyal PC players.

No marathon for me either, and I have NOT built the final monument yet in Copenhagen as I was busy shipping and there was/is no point yet in closing it off as there is nothing to move onto next. I have done the same in Santas workshop, not that I can ship there etc, but was just hanging off building it to refill lives should I require it at some stage prior to the event ending so will do that later. So it looks like, from what you are all saying and what bfgilinalta has said, is that players like myself, who are advanced in the game get nothing. I just like the challenge and would really appreciate a diversion from the boredom of waiting for the next city too, WHY do we miss out? And I still don't understand why PC players miss out as well on so much that we get, it simply is not fair. Looks like this marathon event is a big bit of a dud.

Hello Everyone,

I can definitely understand feeling frustrated since this event wouldn't be available for players who have completed all the levels in every available city as well as for those on PC. I want to let you know that I've passed along these concerns to the teams behind this game so they know that some players are unable to participate.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know your circumstances here so I could pass it along to the right teams for future events being planned. While this event may be unable to be changed since it's active, I do know that the teams behind the game would want to know that some players were unable to participate in this particular event.

If there are any further questions or concerns, don't hesitate to PM me or any of our other active Moderators. We are all happy to listen and help out as best we can.

I have built all the monuments in Copenhagen but not done all the levels by any means, no sign of the marathon - do I have to wait for Melbourne to open?

The marathon can only be run in tier 1, so yes it looks like you have to wait for Melbourne

OK, so for anyone who has completed the latest city, its not happening, and for anyone else in any city who is stuck anywhere in between a monument, its also not happening, because if I get this right, you have to have just built a monument in order to do the marathon on tier one of the next 10 levels in that section, is that correct? If so, its just not a level playing ground for everyone to enjoy this event because if you are unfortunate enough to be on a really tricky level thats taking ages to get it out and move on, let alone get to the next monument in order to take advantage of doing the marathon, then those people are unable to have access to it before they somehow manage to get unstuck and move on. Again, fraught with issues and it will be a minority of players who will get this as its only on for 2 days which goes in a flash anyway, it almost over as we speak as its been more than 24 hours since it started and still not everyone is getting it. I call this one a right royal stuff up.

I think it's ridiculous, because we've finished all cities this means we are not being treated equal :-(

It's not fair (and yes I'm one of those who has finished all cities
