North Pole Marathon!

Having tea at BLU hotel in Longyearbyen with John Braun, geologist from Luxemburg, just back from Barneo where he ran the NorthPole Marathon with a 100 runners. He finished second in 5h05! Amazing given the fact that a marathon up there takes about 2 more hours to complete vs. a 'normal' one. The marathon is run on a 3km track (so approx. 14 laps...). more info at:
