It was 36 degrees below zero and Boris Fyodorov from the Siberian village of Oymyakon, was hoping it was going to be colder. He decided the below zero temperature was the perfect time to run a marathon. The village Boris lives in is generally considered the coldest permanently inhabited village in the world.

Boris had heard of a recent marathon at the North Pole that claimed is was the coldest at 28 below zero and he wanted to break that record.  He ran the marathon by himself with little support, he had an escort car that joined him in the third hour and he wore a headlamp to help in his visibility.

He completed the distance in five hours and eight minutes and now wants to organize another marathon, this time with more people and even colder temperatures. He’s hoping to run in-58 to-76 degree weather.
