Susannah Gill

In 2019 Susannah Gill set a new female World Record for running 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days.

She wrote about her experience in ‘Running around the World: How I ran 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days’ (Rethink Press, November 2019) which was written with her running coach and founder of The Running School, Mike Antoniades.

She completed the feat when taking part in the World Marathon Challenge which saw her run 295km and travel 55,000 miles in 168 hours. She finished 6 of the 7 marathons in first place, with an average race time of 3 hours 28 minutes and 9 seconds which beat the previous record of 3 hours 55 minutes.

Susannah has run over 70 marathons and ultras.
