Elaine Du,

 a female photographer from New York University
 who was born in 2000s,

 has completed the 7th World Marathon Challenge

(777WMC)

 

The 777 World Marathon Challenge 2023
 (to run seven marathons on seven continents in seven days),

the first ultra-marathon of the year that has attracted great attention of many running enthusiasts, ended on February 7.

Elaine Du, a female photographer from New York University, born in 2001, succeeded in the Challenge, successfully finishing all seven half-marathon races for the half-marathon group and setting a new record for the youngest female finisher in the history of the event.

Elaine Du is a junior at NYU Tisch School of The Arts,
pursuing a BFA in the Department of Photography and Imaging.

In 2015, she finished the Polar Circle Half-Marathon in Greenland
 as an international volunteer.

 In 2018, she challenged the White Continent Marathon in the Antarctic - King George Island Half-Marathon, winning second place in this group with excellent performance.

It is learned that she has finished more than
 20 half marathons since 2015.

 Over the years, she and her father have continuously participated in the “Mileage Conversion”
public donations organized by the running group for charity, insisting on raising funds for sports equipment and donating library books to schools in poverty-stricken areas.

 In 2019, she held her second solo film exhibition for charity
in Beijing,
which raised USD 12,000 for school children in poverty-stricken mountainous regions.

About the 7th 777WMC 2023

The 7th 777WMC 2023
lasted from January 31 to the early morning of February 7, 2023,

gathering
more than 50 extreme challengers from

the United States, Germany, Canada, Mongolia, Turkey, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Cayman Islands, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Singapore and other countries

By virtue of their individual endurance and collective cooperation, they ran seven full marathons with a length of 42.195km
on seven continents in seven days.
(Nine of them ran half marathons.)

The initial marathon challenge officially started at
 8:40 on the morning of January 31, local time.

The youngest participant in the 777WMC
 is 13 years old (half marathon),
while the oldest is 80 years old.

And there are also four parents and children pairs.

In particular, the two challengers are in a wheelchair,
which is really inspiring.

 

Elaine Du, 7th World Marathon Challenge

More than 40 full-marathon challengers
 -- 7 days ×24 hours, ran over 295km in 7 marathons, and experienced a felt-air temperature difference of approximately 50
within a short time. What’s more, between marathons, they had to adapt themselves to the repeated jet lags during their flights that lasted over 50 hours and covered over 40,000km in total.

 Thus, they experienced the most severe physical and mental challenges, as well as a battle of wills. All challengers must complete physical recovery and relevant preparations for the next marathon
during the 10-hour flight interval between stations.

Perth in Australia for the third one in Australia,

Dubai in the United Arab Emirates

 for the fourth one in Asia,

Madrid in Spain for the fifth one in Europe,

About 777 (WMC)

777 is the nickname of World Marathon Challenge

 given by marathon enthusiasts around the world,
which means running seven marathons on seven continents in seven consecutive days (168 hours).

The initial marathon of 777 starts on the Antarctic continent.

As the gun is fired at the Antarctic Station, the timer will start.

Only the challengers who finish seven marathons on seven continents
 in 168 hours will be declared the winners.

 

Elaine Du, 7th World Marathon Challenge
 
 

Founded in 2015, the World Marathon Challenge
 has been successfully held for six consecutive years until 2020,
with 181 participants.

The men’s net time record is held by

with a 7-station average of 2:45:57,

while the women’s average time record is held by
Kristina Schou Madsen, from Denmark
with a 7-station average of 3:25:57.

In 2021 and 2022,

 In 2023, the event restarted.

The 7th 777 successfully ended in Miami, the USA
on the morning of February 7, 2023
