Mark Kelly, keyboarder of progressive rock flagship Marillion, had something in his pipeline for over 30 years – the result: a brand-new prog-rock project called “Mark Kelly’s Marathon”.
The release of Marathon’s debut album is only a few kilometres away. Therefore, the band has invited the fans on their run towards the release of the album on November 27th – literally.
Whether the fans want to run, walk or ride their bikes – every meter counts!
By sharing screenshots of their preferred running app on Facebook and Instagram, the fans can collect kilometres as a team.
The intermediate result will be shared on the official Marathon website:
Whenever the team reaches a landmark, something album-related will be revealed via the official Marathon newsletter. Some very nice surprises are waiting to be unlocked!
