World Marathon Challenge - 7 Marathons, 7 Continents, 7 Days
World Marathon Challenge - 7 Marathons, 7 Continents, 7 Days

The World Marathon Challenge is 7 marathons, in 7 days, on 7 continents and starts on January 26, 2016 in Antarctica. A maximum of 12 athletes per year, compete over seven days, running a marathon on every continent. The physical and mental demands of this race will be an awesome test of endurance. My dream is to be the first American woman to complete the World Marathon Challenge and attempt to break the women’s record time of 40:22:25. When I first heard about this race, on the Marathon Maniacs site, I wanted to run it. I have a solid running base, my father Fred inspired me to run when I was just 6! I have completed 45 marathons, including 15 Boston marathons.

Rebecca "Becca" Pizzi is an American marathon runner from Belmont, Massachusetts. In 2016 she was the first American woman to complete the World Marathon Challenge, a series of seven marathons on seven continents in seven consecutive days, for which she holds the current record. Wikipedia
