David Gething: Marathon Man

Event Closed

More Details

Seven marathons on seven continents in seven days. This is the World Marathon Challenge. It tests athletes to their limits, going from biting cold Antarctic conditions one day to dry desert heat another. To survive the onslaught of sensations—fear, fatigue, depression, elation—takes a special sort of determination and strength of will. Few would voluntarily take on such a challenge, and fewer still would finish it and write about it. Hong Kong-er David Gething did, and he is here to share his incredible journey which took him from a middle-aged couch potato to a World Marathon champion.

Ticket includes a drink.
