The marathons on my tikit are ok on well packed gravel (eg "lilydale toppings") and paving.
Not quite as pleasant as a 2 in mtn bike tire but doable.
You have to watch where the water runoff collects all the loose stones together - the little wheels don't like it ploughing through that so much - it's like riding through sand.
Paving+tree roots is bumpy.
