Medium pile with 3/4 Inch pile height, formulated with an exclusive blend of nylon and polyester fabric, Marathon lasts longer, paints further, and provides a smoother finish with less lint. Marathon is perfect for large projects as it can take wear and tear while providing consistent coverage and great final appearance.
