What is the Triple 8 Quest? What is the Triple 7 Quest?

Hosted since 2015, both the Triple 7 Quest & Triple 8 Quest have been resounding successes! Whether you want to run the Original 7 Continents or complete The Original 7 plus the new Continent (Zealandia), as well, we have a racing option for you. We travel to marathons and half-marathons organized by local event directors for both The Triple 7 and Triple 8, where we will be joined by as many as 500 local runners. The Triple 8 begins in Auckland, New Zealand and the Triple 7 begins in Perth, Australia. Both events finish at The White Continent Marathon & Half-Marathon in Antarctica. We are excited to announce that in 2021, we are offering once again -- The Ultra Marathon option!! The Triple 7 Quest will offer runners the opportunity to run 7 Ultra Marathons on the original 7 Continents in 7 Days. The Triple 8 Quest will offer runners the opportunity to run 8 Ultra Marathons on 8 Continents in 8 Days. And please note, our events' goals are to complete each event in 7 days or 8 days, respectively. Our events' goal is not to complete under 7 days or under 8 days. Details are finalized and will continue to be updated here on our website. Registration for 2021 Triple 7 Quest & 2021 Triple 8 Quest is now OPEN.
