You can not run Classic directly on an Intel Mac.

There is though an emulator called Sheep Shaver that allows you to use Classic, but I am not sure if games like Marathon will be supported or not. Here is a page about it and a URL for Sheep Shaver.

Since Marathon was released as open source way back there is a project that makes the game work on all platforms

From this link you can download the OS x engine and the original mararthon scenario to work with it

Very cool. I have not even seen Marathon in ages. Glad that happened as I know of a few OSX people who still want to play it. Will pass on that URL.

I am even tempted myself, I have the mararthon Trilogy games on a macworld disk, so all I need is Aleph One to run them in OS X
