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
With few visual references in the landscape, running in a straight line for six miles becomes a mental as well as physical battle. The three manned aid stations, which are around 10K apart, start as black dots on the horizon before slowly emerging as tents and trestle tables laden with hot and cold drinks, biscuits and chocolate. Each offers an irresistible opportunity to stop for something to eat and drink, have a short rest and chat with the camp staff. Time seems to behave differently against the white background and the hours pass quickly.
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.
