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
The temporary camp is set up for each summer season – which usually lasts from October until February – with all supplies shipped in by plane. The goal to leave this pristine environment untouched means that all waste is shipped out of the Antarctic apart from grey water – waste water from washing dishes and sponge baths – which is sent down a bore hole. There’s no running water for showers or conventional toilets and even water used to clean teeth is collected in a drum to be shipped back to Chile.
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.
