SIBERIAN ICE HALF MARATHON Trivia

  • More than 1000 fans of running from 15 regions of Russia and foreign countries take part in the half marathon.
  • In 2001 at the tenth anniversary Siberian Ice Marathon the temperature fell to -39 oС. For the whole half marathon history there has never been such a low temperature. Since the runners could get frost-bitten the organizers advised them to run only 6 km in spite of distances they had applied for.
  • Eventually only 13 participants ran 21,1 km. One more interesting fact was that for the first time of Christmas half marathons a woman showed a better time than a man.
