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.

Member of the Month

Julie Laforge

 

 

Congratulations to our September SCC Member of the Month Julie LaForge. Julie completed her seventh continent in July of this year at the Australian Outback Marathon. Julie started running 19 years ago after the birth of her second son. Her first marathon was The Flying Pig – for the bling of course. Even though she crossed the finish line, the marathon was tough and Julie swore she would never do it again.

 

However, just two years later Julie convinced herself to do another marathon and of course, she was officially hooked on running. Julie believes the next turning point in her running career was when she traveled to China alone and ran the Great Wall Marathon after some personal lows. Once she had finished the Great Wall marathon and met a group of wonderful people, she knew that she wanted to do all seven continents. When Julie got home, she put her name down for the Antarctica Marathon.

 

Julie states that the Antarctica marathon was her favorite. Not only was it great because of the challenging course and location, but she says it was her first time she had a family member (her sister Kathy) to share the experience with and this made it even more worthwhile.

Our favorite line from Julie was her answer to what her favorite thing about running is. Julie says that it is how strong and empowered she has become. “I am 50 years old and never felt better”.

Congratulations Julie!
