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 first runner home is Frenchman Clément Thévent, who leads from start to finish to win the men’s marathon in a course-record time of 3:47:07. Behind him is Yvonne Brown from the UK who finishes second overall and wins the women’s race in an impressive 4:26:10. Alvin Matthews of the USA finishes third in 4:38:19 closely followed by the second and third women: Ireland's Emer Dooley who finishes in 4:41:30 and Alison Hamlett (UK) who completes the marathon in 4:46:39. With three women in the top five finishers, it's the strongest women's field ever, and all three break the course record. Each time a runner appears on the horizon, everyone leaves the mess tent to give them a cheer as they approach the finish. Standing around afterwards isn’t encouraged though: it’s straight into the mess tent for some hot food and a change into warm dry clothes.
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.
