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
At 11am on December 1, 32 runners from 17 countries cross the start line of the seventh Antarctic Ice Marathon in bright sunshine, eager to complete the challenge ahead. The course has been groomed and marked with small orange flags at 50m intervals. Everyone in the camp has been forbidden to drive on it in the week leading up to the race so the going will be as even as possible. The uniform surface disguises terrain that’s tough to run on, and as the day wears on, the sun softens the snow, with the result that the second lap is even tougher than the first. Every step saps energy.
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.
