Marian Rosemarie Sutton (born 7 October 1963) is an English long-distance runner. She won the Chicago Marathon twice and competed for Britain at the 2000 Summer Olympics and several IAAF World Half Marathon Championships. She represented England at the 2002 Commonwealth Games, placing eighth in marathon.
Sutton's came to promenence as a marathon runner when she finished fifth in the 1995 Chicago Marathon. Then determined to qualify for the 1996 Summer Olympics she with coach Bud Baldaro scheduled training to cope with the heat expected in Atlanta. However she was not selected for the British team with Karen MacLeod and Suzanne Rigg taking the final two places along side Liz McColgan. This snub spurred Sutton on to win the Chicago Marathon in 1996 and completed the double win a year later.
Sutton was selected for the 2000 Summer Olympics as the only Briton.
