A Polar Challenge success! The Polar Challenge is a 320-nautical mile race from Resolute Bay, Canada to the 1996 position of the Magnetic North Pole. Groups race in teams of three and the course takes about a month to complete. This extreme race covers very challenging terrain, as participants endure harsh weather conditions. This is the first year that all teams that started the race, also finished it. All teams competing in this year’s competition received a ColdAvenger Pro mask to protect their lungs and airways and protect their faces from the elements. Racer Dell Weingarten reports back on how the race went and how well the ColdAvenger fared in the earth’s most extreme environment.
The Polar Challenge was an amazing experience! I just got back and am still trying to adjust to life out of the Arctic. I do feel blessed that I was able to participate and finish this incredible race. This is the first that all teams made it to the finish line. The ColdAvenger was key…When I play or work in a cold environment in the future, I’m 110% positive that I will use a ColdAvenger. I know that using the ColdAvenger not only helped my airways when breathing but kept my nose and cheeks from getting frostbite. One of the great things about the ColdAvenger is that your Goggles do not fog up. You are able to read a GPS, keep a look out for Polar Bears and see where you are going. I used the ColdAvenger for hours and hours. Thanks for helping make this an incredibly enjoyable experience. It is truly a great product!
Thanks Dell, for the update and the pictures! What an amazing experience for you and the other racers. Well done, all of you.
