The North Pole Marathon Offers the Running Experience of a Lifetime
Do you have the nerve and drive to travel to the North Pole and run on Arctic ice floes, with only a few metres separating you from the Arctic Ocean? Can you handle the extreme cold? Are you fit enough? Do you want to push yourself to the edge? If the answer is yes, then you are ready for the North Pole Marathon!
By competing in the North Pole Marathon, you can become one of a truly select few to race at the top of the world: the Geographic North Pole. And you definitely will feel on top of the world when you manage to overcome the extreme sub-zero temperatures to finish 42.195km in the "World's Coolest Marathon", in one of the most remote parts of the planet.
Run on Frozen Arctic Ice Floes in Challenging Sub-Zero Temperatures!
Join race director Richard Donovan, the first marathoner at both the North and South Poles, in a trip of a lifetime. Remember, this marathon is not run on land - it is run 'on' water, frozen water, in the high Arctic Ocean. You will never have a greater adventure marathon story!
The North Pole Marathon will also feature an exciting team challenge, with the title decided by the shortest cumulative time of a team's first three finishers. Whether comprised from an army division, company, athletics club or charity, your team can enter this contest. This amazing race will additionally offer athletes who have completed a marathon on all seven continents the opportunity of joining the exclusive North Pole Marathon Grand Slam Club by also completing this marathon on the Arctic Ocean.
