After that, you then learn ''why'' the whole debacle happened, Arl Eamon got poisoned by (possibly your former best friend) Jowan, a blood mage. To cure him, you need to find the Urn of Sacred Ashes, which has been lost for (literal) ages. Tracking it down requires you to go into Denerim to find a scholar, who isn’t there, and his assistant was [[KillAndReplace killed and replaced]]. That leads you to Haven, a village up in the mountains, home to a religious cult. Then you have to get through an abandoned temple, filled with zealots, traps, and dragons. ‘’Then’’ you have to fight a goddamned ‘’’High Dragon’’’ to get into the temple itself, then through it’s challenges, which involve a MirrorBoss, and a logic puzzle. After that you return to Redcliffe and finally finish doing stuff for the quest (Arl of Redcliffe technically doesn’t end until Eamon calls the Landsmeet, ostensibly the game’s second act.). All of that is an hours-long trial. But there is good loot along the way, at least.

* At at length of 12.9 miles (20.8 km), the Nürburgring Nordschliefe circuit is auto racing's Marathon Level. Known less formally, but no less accurately, as "Green Hell", UsefulNotes/FormulaOne stopped racing here because the sheer length, lack of runoff between the track and the walls, and driver fatigue made the racing too dangerous. F1 now race on the adjoining GP circuit, a measly 3.2 miles (5.1 km) in comparison. These days, the Nürburgring's mostly used as a tourist attraction, where people are allowed to race on it for a fee. Automakers also rent out the track for certain days in order to put the car's 'Ring time on the brochure.

* At at length of 12.9 miles (20.8 km), the Nürburgring Nordschliefe Nurburgring Nordschliefe(pronounced "Nord-shul-ife-uh") circuit is auto racing's the ultimate Marathon Level. Known Level of Motorsport. It is known less formally, but no less accurately, as "Green "the Green Hell", a term coined by 3-time Formula 1 World Champion Jackie Stewart. UsefulNotes/FormulaOne stopped racing here on this configuration after 1976 because of the sheer length, lack of runoff between the track and the walls, barriers, and driver fatigue made fatigue(drivers attempted to boycott the racing too dangerous. F1 now race on the adjoining GP circuit, a measly 3.2 miles (5.1 km) in comparison. These days, the Nürburgring's mostly that year, which showed how desperate everyone was to finally stop). When its not being used as a for official races, its an effective tourist attraction, where people are allowed to race on can drive it for a fee. Automakers also rent out the track for certain days periods in order to put try setting, and in some cases breaking, the car's 'Ring overall production car lap record (which currently sits at 6:47:25, having been set by factory driver Lars Kern driving the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS).
* And this is the track example. In terms of actual events, endurance racing is entirely centered around this. Races are usually measured in
time lasting anywhere from 3 to 24 hours-yes, you heard that right-with multiple classes, each class having cars that compete within it, on the brochure.track at the same time, which means lapping of traffic is a primary staple. Whoever crosses the finish line in first place after the clock runs out is declared the winner, both overall and in class. Since, of course, it is physically impossible to drive race cars-especially the fastest class or on tough tracks like the aforementioned Nordschelife, multiple drivers-anywhere from 2 to 5 depending on race, track, or regulations-share one car, with swapping taking place mid-race during pit stops. It is perhaps the most physically and mentally demanding of all sports, as a driver must manage the car pace, most of it's gadgets, the tyre wear, the fuel load and mileage, slow and fast traffic, and his own stamina. Likewise, it is also the most rewarding, as teams and drivers can get millions of dollars of prize money according to success and race prestige, but more importantly personal satisfaction with having done an incredible feat most people can only dream of. The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the world's most famous and prestigious of them.

* ''[[VideoGame/NeedForSpeed Need for Speed: Shift]]'' has one set of races designed to infuriate anyone going for 100% completion: Endurance. It consists of 5 races: 3 of them are 10 laps on ostensibly long tracks (the famed Spa-Francorchamps being one of them), one of them is 30 laps on a tiny figure-eight track, and then 3 laps on the legendary Nordschleife. THEN you get to challenge the 'Endurance champion' to complete the race sets. Even with heavily modified Tier 3 vehicles, the entire thing will take you a good 2-3 hours.

* Ultimate Mode in ''VideoGame/SuperMonkeyBall Deluxe'', where you have to go through all of the Beginner, Advance, and Expert stages in one sitting. You are able to save, but it possibly won't help that much. Also, this is the only way to unlock the Master stages. Good luck on [[ThatOneLevel/SuperMonkeyBall Exam-C!]]
** Then there's Expert in general. It's 50 levels long and houses a grand majority of Monkey Ball's most infamous stages, including the aforementioned Exam-C. Bear in mind that Expert in ''Deluxe'' is comprised of ''[[ThisIsGonnaSuck two Expert courses]]''.

** The ''Forza Horizon'' sub-series isn't exempt either. The "Horizon Finale" event in ''2'' has you driving through every town in the game in one super-circuit. The "Goliath Circuit" in ''3'' (which shows up once you level Byron Bay up to level 5) is a similar trek.
