The North Pole Marathon
The North Pole Marathon is the ultimate physical and mental challenge. An adventure like no other, an opportunity to test mental and physical limits on arguably the most extreme marathon course on the planet. A course that within our lifetime is likely to disappear forever. It is run entirely ‘on’ water, the frozen water of the Arctic Ocea, over the classic 42.195km (26.2 miles ) marathon distance. Times are totally unpredictable
Barneo Ice Camp is the name of the temporary base camp that is put in place for the North Pole Marathon. It is a unique complex on a drifting ice floe in the Arctic Ocean in the immediate proximity of The North Pole. The complex includes a runway and a tent camp constructed for a period of three weeks each April, where it also caters for scientists and explorers.
