How the race works
With seven marathon and seven half marathon courses on seven continents, you will register as an individual, choosing either to complete a full marathon or a half marathon on each of the continents. You can run your full or half marathon by accumulating the equivalent miles over multiple runs (or walks) or doing it all at once to complete your race on each continent.
Track your runs on one of the many GPS tracking systems, log your miles and time and watch your dot move across the course. After you finish 26.2 miles or 13.1 miles on one continent, you will move on to the next one, totaling either 183.4 miles or 91.7 miles to complete your journey. Details about inputting course activity can be found here.
The challenge officially kicks off on Saturday, November 7, but you are welcome to start later, too. Sunday, January 31 is the last day to submit mileage and complete your trip around the world.
