World Marathon Challenge 2019

By Luke Hepworth

I’ve chosen to raise much needed funds for Sydney Children's Hospital

Luke aims to complete the 2019 World Marathon Challenge - 7 marathons, across 7 continents, within 7 days.

Commencing with a marathon on the ice of the Antarctic peninsula, the World Marathon Challenge continues with Cape Town, Perth, Dubai, Madrid, Santiago and Miami.

Apart from the physical and mental challenges each entrant will endure, they will travel 55.85 flight hours, across 37,014 km of air travel and experience temperatures from 7 to 30 degrees with sleep deprivation and no down time. The 2019 World Marathon Challenge will certainly push everyone to their limits.

Each leg of the race, Luke will donate and raise money for charity.

Novolazarevskaya (Novo) is the location of the Antarctica Intercontinental Marathon ™, the first marathon of the 2019 World Marathon Challenge ®. The Antarctica Intercontinental Marathon will be held on January 31st at Novo’s aircraft ice runway.

Luke will be raising money in this leg of the challenge for Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick.

Thank you to my Supporters
