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 390 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 and what made you want to break the record for being the fastest combined marathon time?

 

Alan ran his first marathon back in 2001 and a few years after that, he decided to go for the Guinness World Record after hearing about the Seven Continents Club and the record from a running friend. As a lifelong runner and keen traveler, the goal seemed like a natural fit. This goal was intended to push his personal limits as a runner and to thank the family and friends who have continuously supported his running goals. However, Alan understood that the record would be tough to break due to the enormous task of staying healthy, injury free and coping with jetlag and extreme weather conditions. Alan managed to move through the challenges with ease and is now the new Guinness World Record holder! I have pushed myself to new limits, and I have been able to support some noble causes along the way,” he says.  Alan believes that the experience of breaking this record over the past decade has gifted him unbeatable marathon experiences in various parts of the world. Congratulations Alan!
 

What is your favorite marathon and why?
While the most memorable for Alan is the Antarctica Marathon, the Boston Marathon is his favorite. Alan notes that it is “hard to match the history and significance of the Boston Marathon”. Being from the Boston area himself, this marathon holds special significance for Alan both as a spectator and runner. His participation in this race has taken on a new meaning since 2013, and is now a way for Alan to show support for the victims and their families. “The Boston Marathon is more than just a race” he proclaims, “... it's an experience.”

Favorite thing about running and traveling?

Alan loves the unique perspective running gives you and of course the people you end up meeting along the way.  He believes by travelling to run, you are awarded the opportunity to see a location in a way that most others do not.  Alan also notes that it is “a great excuse to travel somewhere to visit a friend who lives far away or just to check off another place on your bucket list.”  And we agree!
