The World Marathon Challenge is the only annual event that offers the opportunity to run 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days.
The first marathon occurs within the Antarctic Circle on mainland Antarctica and the final marathon takes place in Miami, North America.
Michael Wardian holds the world record set in 2017. His cumulative marathon time of 19:21:36 hrs (or average marathon time of 2:45:57 hrs) is outstanding. He did not compete last year. This year's Challenge starts January 31st.
Just today Michael posted on his FB page. "I am beyond excited to announce I have gotten a spot for 2019. Running 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 continents is without a doubt one of the most incredible things I have gotten to do and I cannot wait to see what is possible in 2019.
Thanks Richard Donovan (director of event) and team for allowing me the opportunity and to everyone that supports me. I can’t do these things without you," Michael wrote.
The entry fee for this event is 36,000 Euros ($40,087US).(12/20/2018) ⚡AMP
