About the Event
Welcome to the 13th Marcothon.
The rules are simply, you must run every day in DECEMBER. Minimum of three miles or 25 minutes – which ever comes first. The challenge starts on December 1 and finishes on December 31. And yes, that includes Christmas Day.
It's not a competition. Just a personal challenge or an incentive to burn off calories.
The history: This all started in 2009, when Marco Consani challenged himself to run every day in November. His wife. Debbie decided to follow suit and run every day in December. She posted the challenge – and dubbed it the Marcothon - and before she knew it there was a group of runners equally eager to embrace the winter conditions of December 2009. In 2010, the group was added to Facebook and attracted over 500 runners from across the globe. Last year, there were nearly 6000! Thousands of runners, across the world, all running together for absolutely no reason whatsoever. You'll love it.
As much as this is a great challenge, you do have to be sensible if you’re not used to running every day, be very careful. If you feel an injury coming on, then be sensible.
