Located between 89N and 90N, with an average temperature of -25°C to -30°C, the race is recognised by the Guinness World Records as the northernmost marathon on earth.
The race is the only marathon that is held entirely “on” water, a huge body of frozen water.
The race runs in a contained circuit with flags to guide the runners. Full marathon runners need to run around 10 laps of about 4km each.
The entire ice sheet move along with the ocean current, though runners could hardly feel the slight movement.
