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.

Congratulations to our August  M.O.M. Michael Booth! Michael recently finished the 7 continents, a goal he set for himself back in 2005. This Tasmanian resident has also run a marathon in every Australian state and territory. We asked Michael what his favorite thing about running & traveling was: "I love running because of both the camaraderie and solitude, and travelling, because I get to spend quality time with my wife in our busy lives, when I am travelling I am not at work, I am meeting people from all over the world, and appreciating how lucky we are where we live."

 

While he cannot choose favorite marathons (it would be like choosing a favorite child) the Antarctica and Great Wall Marathons are two that stick out in his mind.

 

His current long-term goals include:

-Completing a total 100 marathons (he's already got 67 down)

-Running the circumference of the Earth (i.e. 40,075km or 24,902 miles) he is already over half-way there, having run 28,725 kilometres to-date.

 

There is a lot of purpose in this distance, as Michael runs to promote awareness of organ and tissue donation, in memory of his daughter Alison. You can see more about Michael's great initiative in this short video.
