To promote the new season, fans had to run to watch a marathon

Fans of Game of Thrones in Italy had to run 26 miles to rewatch season one to six of the show. The marathon by European broadcaster Sky had fans running after a giant screen that replayed all the past six seasons of the HBO original.


The marathon culminated in the simultaneous airing of the premiere episode for the show's much-awaited seventh season. For your reference, 26 miles is just a few miles shy of the distance between Lannisport and Casterly Rock. Not quite the trek to The Wall but still a commendable feat considering that other marathons are confined to the living room.
