The act of drinking continuously and progressively throughout the day in hopes of achieving and maintaining an "awesome state" of drunkness. They usually pertain to tailgating events or other events such as St. Patty's, Cinco de Mayo.. or no particular reason on a Friday,Saturday, Monday, Wednesday afternoon. The main idea is to last.
Those who do not make it past 10 pm...epic fail and free to shame.
Anyone want to do another Octobong?
No, I already had four and I want to last this is a marathon not a sprint!

20 beers, 10 jello shots and I'm still alive, victory!

Marathon Drinking is different from other marathons because even those that do not finish still win.
