Description

If you were wondering how it feels to be on top of the world, or to run on water that's 20 degrees below zero, then the North Pole Marathon can answer your quandaries in style. There, you can compete in the world’s northernmost and coolest marathon held in one of the most remote parts of the planet, with 6 to 12 feet of ice flow separating you from the depths of Arctic Ocean. As the only certified marathon that is run entirely ‘on’ water, the North Pole Marathon will present a real endurance test for your body with the soft snow and hillocks of ice along the way, swirling snow causing temporary snow blindness, and overall the toughest terrain for a race. Leave the blooming spring behind and embark on a grueling North Pole adventure in the high Arctic Ocean!
