7 marathons 7 continents 7 days

 

world marathon challengeThe World Marathon Challenge is an amazing logistical and physical challenge to run 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days.

After the first marathon commences within the Antarctic Circle on the 17th January 2015, there will be a mere 168 hours left to complete the challenge.

During the 7 day time period, competitors must run standard 26.2 mile (42.2Km) marathon distances at Union Glacier (Antarctica), Punta Arenas (Chile), Miami (USA), Madrid (Spain), Marrakech (Morocco), Dubai (United Arab Emirates) and Sydney (Australia). In doing so, they will complete 7 marathons on the planet’s 7 continents: Antarctica, South America, North America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australasia.

Competitors will undoubtedly suffer from marathon fatigue, jet lag and sleep deprivation as the event progresses. The impact of wide temperature fluctuations will also be a factor in success or failure, with possible variation of 50 degrees Celsius.
