Are there any sports other than Test Cricket played over the course of five days to achieve a result? Even in Cricket, the match may end in a draw, which means no result is obtained. But, is there any sport available, that takes as long to play and achieves a result at the end?

    How long is "too long?" Why is Test Cricket played "too long?" – user527 Feb 5 '14 at 15:15

In tennis, John Isner defeated Nicholas Mahut 6–4, 3–6, 6–7(7–9), 7–6(7–3), 70–68 in the first round of the 2010 Wimbledon Championships after 11 hours 5 minutes, played over three days.(1)

Please note that this is an extremely rare corner case, but fits the definition of "played too long to achieve result."

    That's still two days short of a test cricket match. – Michael Myers Feb 5 '14 at 17:56
