World Marathon Challenge®
The World Marathon Challenge® is a  logistical and physical challenge to run seven marathons on seven continents in seven days. Competitors must run the standard 42.2 km marathon distance in Antarctica, Africa, Australia, Asia, Europe, South America and North America within 168 hours, or 7 days.
North Pole Marathon®
The North Pole Marathon® is the World’s Coolest Marathon®, where you can become one of a truly select few to race at the top of the world - at the Geographic North Pole. In this location, you can feel on top of the world if you manage to finish 26.2 miles at one of earth's farthest extremes.
Antarctic Ice Marathon®
The Antarctic Ice Marathon® at the opposite end of the planet is also organized by Runbuk, providing competitors with underfoot conditions of snow and ice throughout, an average wind chill temperature of -20C, and the possibility of strong Katabatic winds on the frozen continent.
How far can you run, how far can you push yourself, how far away to earth’s extremes are you prepared to travel?
