Freezing For Futures – Ben & Charlie Taking On Polar Marathon

Think it’s been getting a bit chilly in the past week or so? Spare a thought for Ben and Charlie Wharfe who will be taking on The Polar Circle Marathon this coming weekend in support of Universal Chance.

Referred to as “the coolest marathon on earth” it takes place in Greenland in temperatures as low as -25ºC. The endless ice and snow of this vast country make up the backdrop of this unusual race, in which runners pass glacier tongues, moraine landscapes and soundless, arctic desert.
