And during Finland Ice Marathon in Kuopio as usual. Weather forecast promised sunny fresh winter conditions, -32C (-26F) for the time of the start. For everyone’s pleasant surprise, the forecast was accurate, so the preparations with ski goggles and windscreens weren’t useless. Everyone sure remembers the kicksled racing rules explicitly state that ‘there is no temperature limit’.

Markku Levänen’s blog has nice report of the events. We recommend especially the ‘frozen solid’ photos of local newspaper Savon Sanomat
