It's 100 years since Amundsen beat Scott to the South Pole. To mark the anniversary, we headed to the Antarctic for a modern polar challenge: the Antarctic Ice Marathon
It’s busy time to be at Union Glacier camp. There are groups of Norwegians about to ski south to meet their prime minister on December 14 for the anniversary celebrations. Four engineers from the British Antarctic Survey (Antarctica.ac.uk) are passing through on their way to the British base at Rothera. They’re the advance party transporting 70 tonnes of equipment to Lake Ellsworth before the drilling project – to collect water and sediment samples from 3K under the Western Antarctic Ice Sheet – begins in October, 2012. There are guides who’ve climbed Everest more than 10 times and scientists who are tracking the retreat of the Antarctic ice sheet. They all rely on small planes to get around.
Is it possible for some information with regards to Brand/Make of the footwear used by any of the runners in the Ice Marathon (Antartic) or even any snow/ice race.
I hope to do this run and would like to get my footwear right.
