Hey folks! We helped design a marathon quiz for our friends over at Health I.Q. -a life insurance provider for runners. Check it out here. You will be required to set up a username and password but it is free.
The questions are based on knowledge that one would know who is actively involved in marathon training. Health IQ has found that your knowledge correlates to your actual health level (hence that name Health I.Q.). Here two sample questions:
