If you are looking for the "TheCoolest" marathon race in the world, then you should definitely consider the North Pole Marathon. This is a great challenge dedicated adventurous runners, who want to push themselves to the edge.
The North Pole Marathon is the northernmost marathon on earth and was started by Richard Donovan in 2002, where he completed The North Pole Marahton alone.
The participants in the North Pole Marathon fly to Longyearbyen on Spitsbergen (Svalbard) in Norway. From there the organizers will fly them to the North Pole.
As a participant you will experience extreme cold in one of the remotest parts of the world. The temperature can be minus 30°C or lower (WindChill). But it varies quite a lot. At RaceDay in 2010 the temperature was not much below 0, whereas the temperature was minus 32°C in 2011.
According to the organizers the participants do not need any extreme weather experience. There is generally no cut-off time.
