Explain how do you run a marathon on all 7 continents

So today a 13 year old girl has started a mission to run a marathon on all 7 continents in 1 year.

I get the idea of how to do 6 of them. But the 7th escapes me. Where do you sign up? How do you train for it? Who else is doing it?


I wish her luck.

The answer is in the BBC.

Find the peace in that, and the rest is elementary.

I'm not sure about permission but I have met a bloke who ran in the 2010 Ice Marathon and he trained in a large freezer warehouse, just did lots of laps of the frozen vegies.

I don't know about the age for any other marathon. But she did the Eugene Oregon Marathon and the minimum age is 16. She got permission as she is running for cancer awarness.

She is doing all 7 continents in a calendar year. Next up is Kenya Africa.

Beat me to it.


And if people knew how they're throwing their money away "for cancer research", they'd run marathons to raise awareness about that.

Yeah death is personal.

But he died of cancer, prostate thus she is running for it.

Not like he was hit by a bus and she is running for cancer.

She's running for something.


In circles, but she doesn't know that yet.


The intent is golden. It's the fool's way.
