Laura Jones could not run a mile in 2016 and now 7 marathons on 7 continents in one year

Laura Jones overcame extreme Arctic conditions to battle her way across 26.2 miles of sheet ice, snow and even a frozen river as she completed a race across Canada's relentless Yukon territory. The 29-year-old, who last year had never run further than 5k, set herself up to do the "I Can Run 7 Challenge" to complete seven marathons in seven continents within a year. After finishing the Canadian race alongside her husband Rhys, she now has her sights set on her final marathon in Kilimanjaro on Sunday, March 4, after already completing events in London, Everest, Patagonia in Chile, Rottnest Island in Australia and Seattle.
