I can't swim, are there any accommodations?

Do I have to ride or run outside?
Nope, you can use a treadmill or elliptical and walk the 26.2 miles, stationary bikes or spin bikes count to for the 112 miles. Top tip: Its best to be consistent, a little exercise each day adds up. Don't try to do it all in a few days.
