North America

North America is a continent entirely within the Northern Hemisphere and almost all within the Western Hemisphere.   It is bordered to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, to the west and south by the Pacific Ocean, and to the southeast by South America and the Caribbean Sea.  North America covers an area of about 9,540,000 square miles, about 16.5% of the earth’s land area and about 4.8% of its total surface.  North America is the third largest continent by area, following Asia and Africa.

North America’s three largest countries are Canada, The United States and Mexico.  The U.S. will play host to the 5th race for the Triple 7 Quest.  There we will run in the Presidential Inauguration International Marathon & Half Marathon in New York, where we will be joined by many local New Yorkers.
