Antarctic Ice Marathon is the only marathon run in the interior of the Antarctic and is organised by Polar Running Adventures. It takes place at 80 Degrees South, just a few hundred miles from the South Pole at the foot of the Ellsworth Mountains. This race presents a truly formidable and genuine Antarctic challenge with underfoot conditions comprising snow and ice throughout, an average windchill temperature of –20C, and the possibility of strong Katabatic winds to contend with. Furthermore, the event takes place at an altitude of 700 metres.

Course / Route Map
The five-day itinerary will see competitors fly by private jet from Punta Arenas, Chile, to the marathon location at Union Glacier. The marathon race will be run in the vicinity of the Union Glacier camp on a 25km loop followed by a 17.2km inner loop. The course will be groomed before the race and may comprise a reasonably solid ice surface. However, it can also be comprised of soft and loose snow in places, and both features may be evident on the circuit. The 100K competitors will run the 25km circuit 4 times. Snowmobile support, aid stations and medical personnel will be at hand for the duration of the race.
Results of past runs for all runners are available at our Antarctic Ice Marathon Results page.
