Race around the World



An old tradition - on x-mas day is the race around the world. It used to be three 1 mile laps around the Pole, this year it was about one 2.1 mile round. Since you go through all the time zones and pass all the Longitudes you race around the world :). It was a perfect day for it, a warm -26C and very calm, but still the altitude of over 3000m and breathing the cold air is demanding.
Most people run it, some ski, ride a bike or ski/board behind a skidoo. There are also some funny vehicles and if you are dressed up - even better.
