White Continent 50k, Marathon & Half Marathon
Tuesday, January 15, 2019
Welcome to the 7th Anniversary – 2019 White Continent 50k, Marathon & 1/2 Marathon!
Our 2018 WCM Adventure was another outstanding and successful Adventure! For the 2019 we will again camp overnight for the 5th year in a row. This will once again allow all of our runners to complete their races on King George Island, Antarctica. During the race, our runners are cheered on by penguins and seals. Following the races our runners are able to enjoy excursions to a penguin colony, where they see Gentoo, Adelie & Chinstrap penguins. They also explore the nearby Russian Research base and their ornate Orthodox Church.
We are proud to be the Antarctic race with the most world records set at it, including: the first female hand cyclist to complete a Marathon in Antarctica (and now all 7 continents); the youngest female to complete a marathon on all 7 continents (in 2014 by a 15 year-old and again in 2015 by a 12 year-old); the youngest male to complete a marathon on all 7 continents (age 11); the shortest number of days to complete 7 official marathons on 7 continents by a tethered group; the shortest number of days to complete 7 official marathons on 7 continents (both female & male), the shortest number of days to complete 7 official half-marathons on 7 continents (both female & male) and in 2017 the oldest male to complete a marathon in Antarctica and marathons on all 7 Continents (age 77) and many others. It is overwhelming and extremely gratifying to see everyone accomplish their dreams at The White Continent Marathon!

The 2019 WCM will once again be camping overnight in Antarctica. It is a great experience! That’s right the 2019 White Continent 50k, Marathon & 1/2 Marathon Adventure will be sleeping overnight in Antarctica the evening before the race. This will guarantee that everyone will finish their race in Antarctica.
