Man Completes Seven Marathons In Seven Days, On Seven Different Continents
Michael Wardian, 42, has been an absolute animal and managed to complete seven different marathons in seven days, on seven continents.
Running for the bus is hard enough, let alone running 26.2 miles seven times in as many days all around the world.
But Wardian has proved his mental and physical strength and fitness by successfully completing the World Marathon Challenge, along with 29 other participants.
The intense course sees competitors run marathons in Antarctica, South America, North America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
After the opening race in Antarctica, competitors, including Wardian, had to run in the following destinations:
Union Glacier (Antarctica), Punta Arenas (Chile), Miami (USA), Madrid (Spain), Marrakech (Morocco), Dubai (United Arab Emirates) and Sydney (Australia).
In total, competitors were tasked with completing the entire sequence in 168 hours and flied to each individual location via private yet.
And though fatigue and jet lag is off the charts, as is the immense challenge of adapting to different climates and conditions, Wardian soared through and broke the world record along the way.
An average time of 3:32 was the benchmark beforehand out of the two editions in 2015 and 2016, but Wardian absolutely smashed that by recording an average time of 2:45 across the seven different races, which is just utterly insane.
If you fancy putting your body to the absolute maximum, the very same event will be taking place in 2018.
