Seven Continents Club ™ (SCC) was founded in 1995 when our inaugural Antarctica Marathon and Half-Marathon made it possible for runners to conquer a marathon or half-marathon on seven continents. With over 7600 members from 87 countries, the SCC continues to service clients interested in pursuing their seven continents goal. In addition, the SCC serves as a VIP global frequent traveler club for runners that have a passion for traveling and running in amazing destinations around the world.
To date, 535 men and 272 women have completed this exclusive quest at the marathon distance. Additionally, 20 men and 44 women have completed a half-marathon on all seven continents. We also have three men and two woman who are SCC Finishers at both the marathon and half-marathon level. Click here for the Finishers List.
Thanks to the continued growth in SCC membership and appreciation for the program we have made enhancements to the SCC Program. Each member is now placed in the Bronze, Silver, or Gold based on the number of trips taken with Marathon Tours & Travel.

Despite the name, traveling with Marathon Tours goes far beyond running a marathon or a half, 10K or 5K, which are distances often included for spouses, children and fellow travelers who may not be able to complete a “full”, but want to participate. In fact, other than race day, these trips are very well-organized vacations to explore local habitats, wildlife, culture, cuisine and as such, provide access to amazing experiences that can even make the marathon seem like an accessory to the adventure itself.
Seven Continents Club (SCC) Member and Six Star Finisher hopeful, Claudine Nicholas has already completed 75 half marathons, 14 full marathons and has collected more than 180 running medals and awards over the last ten years. "The moment I learned about Marathon Tours & Travel (MTT), I signed up to become an SCC member. I’m on the list for Antarctica, and my goal is to run both half-marathons and marathons on all seven continents. With MTT, my goal is easier to obtain, plus I have the pleasure to meet other like-minded runners from around the world. MTT is my dream team behind the scenes helping make my dreams come true!"
