Helping young people reach their goals.
This is a marathon like no other! If you've run a marathon on dry land before, why not take the ultimate challenge in the only endurance race run entirely 'on' water - the frozen water of the Arctic ocean! It's only 26.2 miles (42km) but there are the extreme cold and snow shoes to handle!
Enjoy a trip to the captivating North Pole and test your limits with the ultimate marathon.
Please note: final event dates to be confirmed after April 2012.
