Early reports have come in from the most Southerly point on the planet which indicate that Fiona has won the Antarctic Ice Marathon and in doing so broken two world records and set a course record.
The race’s Facebook group has reported that “Fiona Oakes’ time of 4:20.02 hrs is a new Ice Marathon record beating the previous record recorded by Yvonne Brown of Great Britain who had a time of 4:26.10 hrs.”
This is also a fastest time for completing the marathon Grand Slam of running a marathon on all seven continents plus the North Pole. We believe that it’s also the shortest aggregate time for the events combined.
Congratulations to Fiona on a determined and resourceful effort over recent months to achieve such a demanding event.
