Antarctica is filled with interesting, fit, adventurous, competitive people – and as a result, there are a bunch of races every year. Last time I was at the South Pole, I ran one big race – the South Pole Marathon. This year, while I was at McMurdo Station waiting for my flight out to WAIS Divide Field Camp, I had the opportunity to run two smaller, but equally interesting races. The Scott Hut 10K, and the Ob Hill Uphill.
Both races were great – and the epic blizzard on the morning of the Ob Hill Uphill made everything a bit more intense.
