Welcome to the North Pole Marathon - World's Coolest Marathon
Welcome to the running experience of a lifetime. On 9th April each year, athletes like you can make history as a continuing new breed of Arctic adventurer.
By competing in the WORLD'S COOLEST MARATHON, the North Pole Marathon, you can become one of a truly select few to race at the top of the world - at the Geographic North Pole. And you will feel on top of the world when you manage to overcome the extreme sub-zero temperatures to finish 42.195km (26.2 miles) in one of the remotest parts of the planet.
But first you must ask yourself if you have got the nerve and drive to travel to the North Pole and run on Arctic ice floes, with 6 to 12 feet separating you from 12,000 feet of 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. 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.
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.
Wow if I am updating this page in 2019 means i've done it!
I've run the seven continents and the Arctic.
I hopefully have gained membership to, and am part of the exclusive band of people who have completed:
- The Seven Continents Marathon Club
- The Marathon Grand Slam Club
But more importantly I hope I am also celebrating the fact that $100,000 at least has been raised to help with Cancer Research with the goal finding a cure to Cancer.
Imagine a life without Cancer!
