We got a Marathon for DD for her 1st birthday last April.  I was looking online and saw that it harnesses to 65lbs?  Is this true?  For whatever reason I thought it was lower than that.  If it really is 65lbs I'm very, very happy.  I love this seat!

The Britax Marathon will harness to 65lbs. It will be outgrown rear facing at 33 or 35lbs (depending on date of manufacture, check your manual nad stickers), or when there is less than 1" of shell above the head. For rear facing the harness needs to be at or below the shoulders, and chest buckle at armpit height.

For forward facing, it will be outgrown when the child hits 65lbs, shoulders go over the top harness slot, or the ears become level with hte seat back. For forward facing, the harness needs to be at or above the shoulders.
