What Does a 13.1 Bumper Sticker Mean?

We’ve all seen them. For years, these numbered bumper stickers have been adorning car windows and bumpers. There are two numbers commonly seen: 13.1 and 26.2. These numbers are significant to a subset of people who enjoy running. 13.1 miles is the distance of a half marathon, and 26.2 is the distance of a full marathon.

Marathons aren’t just a great way to get runners together for a competition. They also serve as an excellent fundraising platform for a variety of charities. Because of this, marathon and charity organisers often work together to create a bumper sticker for the event. 

In addition to printing bumper stickers for the event itself, they will often print hundreds of 13.1 and 26.2 stickers to hand out to anyone who completes the event. Lots of people love to place these bumper stickers on car door windows as a matter of pride. After all, even a half marathon is a challenging achievement
