Baikal Ice Marathon: spectacular scenery in shivering Siberia

The Baikal Ice Marathon in Siberia attracted runners from more than 50 countries.

The competitors are hardy souls braving a psychologically and physically demanding race.

As well as the freezing conditions the featureless landscape gives little or no sense of perspective to competitors, offering them nothing to focus on but how far they are from the finish.

The Baikal Ice Marathon is one of the most extreme racing competitions on the planet.
