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?

 It was a challenge like no other I’ve done! I never thought I could run one marathon and now I’ve run around the world.

 

How many marathons have you run?

I have run 31  full marathons. 

 

What is your favorite marathon and why?

They have all been memorable for various reasons. Obviously, Boston is at the top because it’s Boston and I ran it in memory of my Mom and Dad.  Antarctica would have to be up there too…with the weather conditions and the fact it was the last of my seven continents in order for me to achieve my Seven Continents Club Finishers Medal…it was an amazing journey.

 

Favorite thing about running and traveling?

Running allows you to clear your thoughts and reflect on recent events…while at the same time running with some great people in my wonderful running club - Phoenix!  Travelling allows you to see the world and in my case, meet some amazing and wonderful people.  My good friends Karen and Mark have traveled and run with me for more than half of my seven continents!

 

What word would you use to describe yourself?

Fortunate!

 

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

Go slow, listen to your body and be determined and dedicated towards your goal…and enjoy very minute of your run!
