Can there be lower rated marathons?

Marathons are dominated by stronger players. Would it be possible to arrange one where weaker players have a chance, like a U2000 or U1500 marathon? Thanks to any answers.

Hello
I honestly doubt it. Been waiting for that since I joined, the same goes for u1500 bullet. You can't even limit the ratings for the tournaments that you create so that doesn't help, either.

In tournaments, you will play players around a similar level, so in the marathons you will likely play people around your level.
