Welcome to the Inaugural – 2024 White Continent TriathlonTM!
For the first time ever a swim, bike, run event will be hosted in Antarctica and Marathon Adventures is happy to be the first, only and pioneer in this arena. This event will be hosted in conjunction with our White Continent 50k, Marathon & Half-Marathon®. The Triathlon will be limited to 10 Triathletes. Please note that others may attempt to copy this event. Or they may attempt to host an event earlier than ours. But know that as of March 2, 2023, no one has ever hosted a swim, bike, run event in Antarctica and no one has or is marketing or selling one, either. So if anyone attempts to copy our event, know it’s just that — a copy and NOT the real deal.
The swim will consist of upto an 800 meter swim, followed by upto a 40 km bike, and concluded with upto a 10km run. Final distances will be determined based upon final approval from governmental authorities.
You can see the parts of where the event will be hosted in the video below, which was taken during the 2016 WCM Adventure:
The CONFIRMED dates for the 2024 WCT are: January 20 – 28, 2024.

The 2024 White Continent TriathlonTM is the only opportunity for those who want to complete a real triathlon (i.e., swim, bike, run) in Antarctica to achieve that goal.
In addition, for those of you who are prone to sea sickness, which is a frequent occurrence when crossing the treacherous Drake Passage, there is no need to worry. We will cross the Drake Passage at a smooth and comfortable 31,000 Feet. As such, you don’t need to be concerned with being sick the day prior to running the marathon, as you might if you were to boat across The Fiery Drake.
For the 2024 White Continent TriathlonTM Adventure, the prices are as follows: Double Occupancy (you will be rooming with another person you are traveling with) – $11,350; Single Occupancy (you will have a hotel room to yourself) – $11,950.
Antarctica is Earth’s southernmost continent. King George Island is one of many of Antarctica’s islands just off the peninsula of Antarctica. The land that today is known as King George Island physically separated from the Antarctic Peninsula roughly 20 million years ago as a result of magmatic arc and seafloor spreading geologic processes. What is now called by some as the “South Shetland micro tectonic plate” is actually a fragment of the larger Antarctic Tectonic Plate that broke off as a result of those geologic processes. King George Island sits atop the Antarctic Continental Shelf.
King George Island, Antarctica is home to many research bases from a number of countries including The United States, Chile, China, Russia, Uruguay and others. It was host to the only rock concert performed in Antarctica by Metallica back in 2013. That concert made Metallica the only band to have performed concerts on the Original 7 Continents. The 2024 White Continent Marathon & Half-Marathon® courses run between the Chilean and Chinese research bases. Our campsite, will be set up along the course and will provide runners the opportunity to refuel during the race and, if needed, allow for a change of clothes.
Please note there is one basic itinerary. The itinerary is the same as the White Continent Marathon & 1/2 Marathon®.
