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 560 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.

Due to the ever-growing popularity and availability of the half-marathon distance race, a half-marathon division was established in 2003 to encourage non-marathoners to enjoy the benefits of running around the world.

Thirdly, we have opened  membership to runners who are simply interested in great travel experiences when they plan their international marathons and half-marathons. There is no pressure or commitment to complete the seven continents goal. The SCC has evolved into a VIP travel club with special travel benefits for runners in addition to the recognition of those who have completed the seven continents.

What made you decide to set the goal of completing a marathon on all seven continents?

My accomplishment of running a marathon on all seven continents actually happened by accident. My love for running and traveling; and being blessed with the time, freedom, home support, and available funds to do so, I set out to run as many exotic and far away races as possible offered by Marathon Tours & Travel. Before I realized it, I had run a full marathon on nearly all seven continents, except Antarctica, which I completed March 2010.  The Outback Marathon in Uluru (Ayres Rock), Australia, which I completed on July 31, 2010 was my seventh continent.


How many marathons have you run?

I have run 130 full marathons including three ultras, which include Comrades (2013), Comrades (2014), and Two Oceans (2015).


What is your favorite marathon and why?

Bagan Temple Marathon in Myanmar (Burma). This was perhaps the most exotic of the many marathons I've run.  I ran amongst the century old temples (pagodas), dodging ox carts and goat herders, and through rural villages.  I experienced the most breathtaking scenery, sights and sounds than any other marathon I’ve run.


Favorite thing about running and traveling?

Traveling to a new place I've never visited, whether it's a different city, state or country, and running through the streets, trails or paths is probably the peak experience for me as a runner. Every marathon has left me with some tangible experience I take away as part of a life experience, which links me to that particular city or race. 


What word would you use to describe yourself?



What words of advice would you give to someone who is training for their first marathon?

Go slow! Running is an endurance sport, which requires time and patience. As humans, we all have the ability to improve our endurance by consistent and steady training. Don't be intimidated by faster seasoned runners. Always run your pace and wait for the miracle to happen!
