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
We head back to the Ilyushin for the journey back to Punta Arenas with a collective sense of achievement. Clément Thévenet has set a new record for the fastest Antarctic marathon. The top three women all beat the previous ladies’ record. Sarah Ames has become the first woman to run seven marathons on seven continents three times over. Don Kern has completed seven marathons on seven continents in 26 days and a handful of runners have joined the Grand Slam club by running a marathon on every continent plus the North Pole. And those of us who haven’t are feeling so inspired that we’re already plotting how to join them.
The Antarctic Ice Marathon 2012 will take place on November 20. Visit icemarathon.com to find out more.
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.
