“I had already been running marathons and was attempting to complete the Six World Major Marathons (London, Berlin, Tokyo, Chicago, New York and Boston). I was attempting my first international marathon in London when I met a gentleman on the marathon bus and he was telling me that he had just finished a marathon in Antartica and had completed one on all seven continents,” said McCue. “During the Seven Marathon journey it began to become more about the adventure than the marathons. We’ve met so many amazing people and made some friends for life,” said McCue. “I got to run alongside some truly inspirational athletes from all walks of life and have been fortunate to see some beautiful places on this planet, and we’ve accumulated some pretty good stories along the way.” Read More
Nick Pacha, Superintendent of Parks for the City of Washington, said running is something he has only recently gotten into. “I did kind of every sport in high school and played football in college,” he said. After college, Pacha picked up running as a new hobby and eventually worked his way up to run his first marathon in Chicago in 2006. He ran the Chicago Marathon again in 2007 and 2010 before finding a company, Marathon Tours and Travel, that did destination marathons. The founders of the company are also the founders of the Seven Continents Club, an exclusive group for people who have the goal to run marathons or half-marathons on all seven continents. Read More
