About Us

We provide high quality, long lasting, durable 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 and how to choose the right size for you.

Marathon was established in 1989. This year we are celebrating 30 years supplying the highest quality bags and accessories and the best possible standard of service in the UK education market.

In 2014 we made the decision to offer our products and services direct to customer with the view to offering an attractive and safe backpack & sports bag option to the wider population. This saw the creation of Marathon Bags Direct! In 2019 we launched our new website and are offering printed and personalised bags for the first time.
