The most recent record for "longest speech marathon" I could find at Guinness is just over 90 hours:

The longest speech marathon is 90 hr and 2 min, achieved by Ananta Ram KC (Nepal) in Kathmandu, Nepal from 27 to 31 August 2018.

The attempt started at 6:15 am on 27th August and finished at 12:17 am on 31st August 2018. Ananta Ram KC maintained a silence for almost 7 days before starting the attempt as a part of his preparation for the longest speech attempt.
In a story about an earlier record (2014) in this category, I found:
Under Guinness World Records guidelines, a speech is defined as, "the act of delivering a formal spoken communication to an audience," meaning using footage, clips or audio is strictly prohibited.

Notes are allowed, written copy, autocues and prompters are not; making Rob's 46 hour 21 minute-long achievement all the more impressive.
