    Once the match starts, it will appear in Active Contests list. I'll also update the post with the direct link to the problem.

        I did :-) Given that this contest turned out to be more popular than two out of three online rounds of TCO17, maybe I should consider investing more into visualizations for the future matches...

    It is a programming contest, but unlike SRMs, each Marathon match offers one hard optimization problem and gives more time to work on it. This post has a lot of introductory material and tutorials.

    I used to enjoy Marathons more than SRMs (back in the days when I had time for participation), and I certainly think they are worth a try, but as the writer I might be biased :-)
