But it’s all worth it.” The World Marathon Challenge is a brutal competition where runners traverse the globe to complete seven marathons in seven days on seven continents. The challenge started with the first marathon on February 6 in Cape Town and continued in Antarctica, Perth, Dubai, Madrid, and Fortaleza, before ending with the seventh 26.2 in Miami.
