About Us


Marathon was established in 1989 as a school bag specialist. This year we are celebrating 30 years supplying the highest quality bags and accessories at the best possible standard of service in the UK market.

 We provide high quality, long lasting, durable Marathon products that are both comfortable and practical to use; as well as being kind to your back. We are passionate about back care and offer a wide range of ergonomic backpacks designed in conjunction with leading chiropractors and physiotherapists. See our back-care information on how to choose the right size for you.

 In 2014 we made the decision to offer our products and services directly to the wider population. This saw the creation of Marathon Bags Direct!

 In 2019 we launched our new website. We have a great selection of bags that can be personalised and printed, but that’s not all.  We have branched out and are pleased to be able to offer you our new range of personalised and printed accessories; from water bottles to teddy bears. Customised accessories that are of high quality for you to enjoy.

 As an independent company we go the extra mile for our customers, always making sure we provide an outstanding service. Your custom is important to us and we aim on continuing to maintain our excellent level of customer care.

Thank you from the team at Marathon Direct.
