Conqueror Virtual Challenge – Marathon to Athens

In earlier blog posts, I talked about my decision to try a new type of virtual run challenge, the Conqueror Virtual Challenges, as well as my completion of my first, second, third, and fourth Conqueror Virtual Challenges: the English Channel, the Inca Trail, Mount Fuji, and Angkor Wat respectively.

I have since completed my fifth Conqueror Virtual Challenge – Marathon to Athens.

Marathon to Athens is a 26 mile (42km) virtual journey that took me on the “legendary route of the original marathon in Greece.” I chose to complete the Marathon to Athens Challenge via walks on the treadmill and stationary bike rides. I completed the Challenge from 20 March until 19 July 2022.

Just like when I completed the previous Challenges, I received a race bib, postcards along the way, a finisher’s certificate, as well as a finisher’s medal. You can find pictures of these below.

I’ve already started my next Challenge, the Berlin Wall. Stay tuned for further updates.
