Antarctica Ice Marathon - Running to the End of the Earth
I absolutely hate running in the cold, so I can't imagine what it would feel like to run an entire marathon in Antarctica. This is truly only for the most deticate (and possibly insane) runners. "It’s the world’s southernmost marathon, ringing part of the Antarctic Circle just a few hundred miles from the South Pole. Held in November on a glacier camp at the foot of the Ellsworth Mountains in Antarctica, itʼs the wind that gets to you. It blows steadily at 10 to 25 mph, with average temperatures between 0 and 10 degrees F. Due to Antarctica’s unsettled weather, it’s normal to have a several-day delay just to set out for the starting line. And with a five-day itinerary once you get there, you’ve got limited time to finish. If not, aid snowmobiles will come, since prolonged exposure to these temperatures and wind chill is so dangerous."
