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 10,151 members from 98 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.
