Runing on the ice now
Published on 02.01.2012 - Pole to Pole Run
Pat Farmer has arrived in Antarctica. On 31 December, he started running -probably leaving from Hercules Inlet. As for the other legs of his adventure, he will have a team with him along the way. Here it's a skidoo and a van under the reponsability of the famous Australian explorer Eric Philips.
We have very few details about the unfolding of the 5th and final leg of Pat Farmer's adventure. We only know -through the short messages sent by famous explorer Eric Philips on a new website-, that Farmer has arrived in Antarctica and started running on 31 December.
Currently he seems to be helped by a van and a skidoo going along with him on the ice. According to the updates, he has run 198 kil in three days.
How does he manage to 'run' on the ice ? On the snow ? With the sastrugis ? No answer so far...
