When you ran your indoor marathon, did your Garmin "work"? I have Indoor Running function on mine (Forerunner 35), but have no idea of its accuracy. I will have someone assigned to me to count my laps in this weekend's indoor race, so I am not concerned about running the wrong distance. Nor, do I care about my pace because my pace makes me
. I am simply curious as I like to download my runs to Strava.

I have the most inexpensive Garmin that I could find, I didn’t even try to figure out if it had an indoor function.
The race I ran had a monitor at the finish line that told you your lap number and split (but not distance). The laps were a weird size so figuring out distance was beyond my mental math ability on the run. It was weird to not know the exact distance covered during the run.
You could try it but always use the manual upload feature if it doesn't. I have to do that for TM runs.
You just need to know time and distance.
I used the indoor running function on my Garmin 35 while running on a treadmill at a hotel gym and it completely lined up with what the treadmill said so I am guessing it will be accurate.
I also checked the pedometer output against the gps "running outdoor" feature and that lined up as well.

I once ran a one hour leg of a 24hr team-run around a soccer field (outside). The loop was probably around 250-300 yards (definitely not full track length).
The GPS was probably at least 10% short on the distance and lots of corners cut on Strava. You could see I ran laps around the field, but edges all across.
So, YMMV I guess especially indoor.
