Awesome in every sense (about: 2007)|
Patrick Waller from England (4/11/07)
6-10 previous marathons
| 1 North Pole Marathon
I have just returned from the 2007 event, and it's billing as the "World's Coolest Marathon" is justified. The cold (-25C - -30C with wind chill), the terrain, and the scenery were all amazing. It was a privilege to witness the first-ever wheelchair athlete at the North Pole - Tan. The athlete was amazing. If you think you get a bit tired after a few hours, try the 21 hours it took Tan to finish. Great athletes, great organization, and the most amazing memories shared with cracking people. Do it before you die. Ps. The food is er, interesting. Take your own. The question of "fans" is moot - there ain't gonna be any.
