As you may have heard (from us, because we won’t stop talking about it), CodeFights hosts a monthly coding competition that we call the Marathon. CodeFights Marathons, unlike their IRL counterparts, only last for one hour. And while you may not get a medal and a free banana afterwards, the top ten participants do get $50 Amazon gift cards, not to mention coins and XP! Our content engineers create brand new challenges for each Marathon, all tricky, fun, and guaranteed to get your brain in gear.
We had a great turnout this month. Over 800 people registered! But of course, there could only be 10 top coders… and only one winner.

Congrats to our top ten competitors, and a big high five to CodeFighter Alex_2008 for coming out on top!
CodeFights CEO and founder Tigran Sloyan and Content Engineer Damien Martin (author of our awesome new CodeFights Solves It and CodeFights Explainer series) provided live commentary during the competition. If you missed the tournament or the live broadcast, we’ve got you covered. You can take a look at the questions from the Marathon and watch a video of the commentary at the same time!
Thank you to everyone who participated and/or watched the live broadcast!
The May Marathon will be here before we know it, so mark May 27 off on your calendar! We’ll post the registration link soon.
The monthly Marathon is a great way to get in some solid coding during the weekend. We love seeing repeat competitors getting better each month they participate in a Marathon. Practice makes perfect! Whether you’re preparing for technical interviews or just becoming the best coder you can be, competition is a great way to hone your skills.
