The Coolest Race on Earth

The Coolest Race on Earth: Mud, Madmen, Glaciers, and Grannies at the Antarctica Marathon The Coolest Race on Earth: Mud, Madmen, Glaciers, and Grannies at the Antarctica Marathon by John Hanc


My review


rating: 3 of 5 stars
The Coolest Race on Earth is a good exploration, not only of the why, where and how of the Antarctica Marathon, but also of "destination " marathons and people who collect marathons as well. John Hanc includes lots of detail, from history and geography of Antarctica to musings about runner's motivations. An interesting book, if you've ever been curious about why someone would want to run a marathon in some crazy place.
