Our inaugural run on March 20, 2021 was a blast! Together we conquered more than 3,500 km (2,175 mi), with more than 190 participants in 16 countries on 5 continents.
We had people participating in kilts and casts. Participants of all ages, from 11 to 75 years old. Some running even farther than the marathon distance, doing up to 86km in a day. We ran through deserts, snow, and rainforests. At high altitude and along the beach. We even have runners who had fallen ill and who put on their bibs and shoes the next weekend for us. So many personal firsts: first half-marathons, first marathons…
Our inaugural Lanterne Rouge award goes to Amy, Margaret and Ron for each having walked a full marathon, in 9h55, and smiling all along the way! They are our heroes.
The first run was too much fun to not be repeated. So we ran the world again, celebrating the second equinox in 2021.
On September 18, more than 80 people ran in 16 countries, on 5 continents, for a total of over 1,175 km (730 mi). Some of them wearing pink tutus ;)
Neil, aka #TheLastStraggler! For defying Nature’s Whim not once, but twice in a row. The before-and-after is a clear testament to the spirit-lifting benefits of endurance and grit.
… goes to Chris Clapp!
Who enlisted and carried his family to finish his *first* team marathon – all the while cheering up Chicagoans with his signature tutu. Don’t miss him in Sep if you’re in town!
54 participants, 9 countries, 3 continents, and an additional 711 km – for a total of 6,011 km.
… goes to … the one-and-only
… Laura Brandimarte!
For defying the docs (who told her she could not run anymore) and free-solo-WALKING the full marathon distance. With the biggest smile on her face :-) Keep it going!
