Record at 2007 Antarctic Ice Marathon and 100k

Run in relatively warm (14 – 17 F) but still challenging conditions, the Antarctic Ice Marathon was won by 43 year old Belgian, Marc De Keyser, with a record time of 4:42:32. Low visibility and freezing sleet cut the number of competitors down in the 100k race, with only two runners completing the distance. Austrian, Christian Schiester, took the victory in 19:58:14. Brit, Susan Holliday, became the first woman to complete the 100k race in the three year history of the event. The races took place December 19/20. Official race report (link)
