In addition to our Seven Continents Club (SCC) Finishers, we have quite a few members in our community who are in the process of earning their SCC Finisher Medal. The SCC offers so much more though than only the opportunity to be recognized for completing the seven continents goal. Many members join the SCC for the VIP Travel Club benefits as they plan for their first international race. Read More
“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
Marathon Tours & Travel (MTT) founded the official Seven Continents Club (SCC) in 1995 when its inaugural Antarctica Marathon and Half-Marathon made it possible for runners to conquer a marathon or half-marathon on all seven continents. Fast forward 24 years later and the SCC has grown from a short list of dedicated runners to 5700 members. Read More
I had decided at the beginning of the year that I wanted to run Dublin because I had never been to Ireland and thought it would be a great way to start my journey to the Seven Continents Club. While trying to register, I discovered that I had to book through Marathon Tours and recognized the name from my work with Back on My Feet Boston (Marathon Tours is a sponsor). I also figured that if I wanted to get more adventurous with my running, it would be beneficial to work with a company who could make that experience as amazing as possible, and I was not wrong.
I love meeting fellow runners from the Marathon Tours group, great camaraderie, great stories,
great fun! Insights on the course, start area, recognition of Seven Continents Club and AbbottWMM Six Star finisihers,
you truly feel like a community when you travel with Marathon Tours!
