“Use your Flying Squirrel powers to reach the goal without touching solid ground.”
In-game description

Marathon Glide is a Special challenge in the Challenge Mode of New Super Mario Bros. U.


Flying Squirrel Mario is required to complete the course, Jungle of the Giants. However, as an added twist, the player cannot touch the ground or lose their Flying Squirrel ability; otherwise, the challenge results in a failure. Although the challenge is given two-stars, it can be rather difficult, due to the placement of some of the enemies.
