Another amazing ultrarunner from Scotland, doing something kinda crazy for charity…
SNOW, ice and temperatures plummeting to -30C aren’t ideal conditions to run a marathon, but the challenge Audrey McIntosh has set her sights on is no ordinary endurance run.
Instead of pounding pavements she will test her fitness to the limits on a stretch of groomed snow that covers crevasses on an active glacier in Antarctica.
The 50-year-old freelance IT project manager, from Cathcart, will be the first Scot to compete in the Antarctic Ice Marathon later this month: a 42.2-kilometre marathon followed by a 100k ultra race with one rest day in between.
