Continents

One of my running goals is to complete a marathon or ultramarathon on all 7 Continents, as inspired by my love of travel and by the Seven Continents Club. This task is not as arduous or time consuming as a 50 States or 50sub4 finish, but does require a significant amount of financial resources and time away from work.


"In 1995, the inaugural Antarctica Marathon on "The Last Continent" made it possible for runners to conquer a marathon on all of the earth's seven continents. In recognition of those runners who have achieved this amazing feat, Marathon Tours & Travel established the Seven Continents Club (SCC).

Since then, over 300 men and women have completed this quest. These adventurous athletes have run on the following continents: North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania and Antarctica."
