Latest challenge for vegan runner- seven marathons over seven continents in seven days

Maldon and Burnham Standard: Fiona Oakes is running seven marathons over seven continents in seven days Fiona Oakes is running seven marathons over seven continents in seven days

A vegan animal lover who ran the ‘toughest race on the planet’ earlier this year, is set to run seven marathons on seven continents in seven days.

Incredibly she says she ‘doesn’t much like running’ and does it to raise money for Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary, Asheldham, which she runs and to promote veganism.

The route will take Fiona Oakes, 43, from Australia, to Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, South America, finishing in Antarctica.

She will run a marathon on each continent.

To warm up for her 777 challenge, she will run in the elite start of the Great North Run in September and will then tackle the Everest Challenge Stage Race in November.

I'd like to know the itinerary (and whether they're certified and sanctioned marathons) I'm guessing it's logistically impossible. These so called marathon records are increasingly coming under scrutiny in athletics circles and by Guinness Book of World Records. http://www.letsrun.c

Well I wouldn't be able to run one, so I'm impressed.

How cool! I actually just picked up a book about vegan runners that this story reminds me of. It's called "Running, Eating, Thinking" (https://lanternbook

. Even more excited to read it now!
