The bipedal robots have been competing in the marathon that lasted for more than two days covering a distance of about 26.2 miles. The Japanese robotics company, Vstone, had previously organized the Robo Mara Full. Robovie-PC won the race after a duration of 54 hours and 57 minutes.

It was only during the last few laps of the competition that Robovie-PC got to the first place. Robovie-PC Lite, another robotic model, manufactured by the same corporation, was followed closely by Robovie-PC. During the final laps of the race, Robovie-PC Lite malfunctioned temporarily and as a result finished second only after Robovie-PC.

The average speed of these robot runners were just less than half a mile per hour. Organizers of this marathon race declared that this event showcased the strength and maneuverability of robots when compared to human runners.
