Dubai Fitness Challenge Athlete Reaches Halfway Point In Challenge To Run 30 Marathons In 30 Days
(10 November 2018)


Dubai-based extreme athlete Marcus Smith took the Dubai Fitness Challenge, DFC, in his stride literally, by pledging to run 30 marathons in 30 days.

Friday, 9th November, marked Day 15 of the DFC and the halfway-point of Smith's herculean marathon challenge. This means he has pounded enough pavements to have completed a whopping 633 kilometres.

The mammoth task takes the DFC ambassador around four hours a day from when he sets off at 5:00 from his Satwa home. Smith plots his own routes, and his runs have taken him to finish points across the city from Palm Jumeirah to Hamdan Sports Centre and Dubai Festival City to Arabian Ranches. He charts his progress daily on his blog and Instagram and has expressed delight at the number of runners who join him for stretches of his daily journey.

Smith, who launched performance company Innerfight and Paleo food provider, Smith St Paleo, is a former professional rugby player who retired from the sport in 2010. He competes in CrossFit, cycling, running, extreme endurance events and challenges. He is also a motivational speaker, fitness coach and entrepreneur.
