In recent years, the marathon has become increasingly popular and popular all over the world. The number of people participating in the marathon is increasing, and the people who participate in this sport have a long-lasting motivation to participate. This article adopts research methods of literature and logical analysis, through the analysis of the psychological state of the people who run marathon from attention, participation, persistence, and finally development to the urban marathon enthusiastic runners at each stage of the growth process, which is for the majority of amateur marathons. The scientific exercise of runners and physical and mental health provide a theoretical basis, and at the same time provide a reference for the healthy development of the Chinese mass marathon.
