Kristina Madsen of Denmark was a highly decorated ultra-runner and a holder of multiple FKTs already when in February she won the Ice Ultra and became the first woman to be the overall winner of a BTU Global Race Series event. In celebration of Kristina’ Madsen’s victory, we bring you an Everything Endurance Ice Ultra Special!
In this episode, we chat with Kristina about her battle across the ice and snow in temperatures as low as -40°c, her historic victory, and what it takes to be successful in the Arctic.
If that wasn’t enough, we also catch up with Karl Alvarez, who came 2nd in the same race and is currently part way through an attempt to complete the whole Global Race Series within a year.
You’ll also find a Race Director’s Round-Up of the Ice Ultra from Kris King, and a brand new regular feature we’re loosely calling the Adam Kimble Radness Update where fellow BTU RD and professional ultra-runner Adam Kimble, brings you an enthusiastic update from the world of endurance achievement!
If you’re inspired by Kristina and Karl’s stories, you can still join us in the Arctic next year for your own battle with the elements: Ice Ultra 2024.
