Could we have variant marathons?

The antichess shield tournament today was by far the most entertaining and fun tournament I have ever done in anti. The marathons are longer versions of these shield tournaments. Would it be possible for there to be variant marathons? It wouldn't have to be every season like standard chess (could be yearly, twice yearly, etc.), but I think the variant communities would love it (myself included.)
Thank you to everybody who helps here at lichess for keeping this site great!
