Seven Continents Club®️ (SCC) was founded in 1995 when our inaugural Antarctica Marathon®️ & Half-Marathon made it possible for runners to conquer a marathon or half-marathon on seven continents. With more than 10,684 members from 100 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, 645 men and 358 women have completed this exclusive quest at the marathon distance. Additionally, 33 men and 65 women have completed a half-marathon on all seven continents. We also have 7 men and 4 woman who are SCC Finishers at both the marathon and half-marathon level.  We’re looking forward to recognizing our first ultra-marathon SCC Finishers beginning in 2024.
