baikal half marathon
On Saturday 3rd March 2012 Lucy Ward and Liam Halligan completed a half marathon in aid of ThePromise. The race was held on the deepest lake in the world, Lake Baikal in Siberia, which is frozen over with 1.5m of ice.
With temperatures at a balmy -7c Lucy and Liam completed the tradition of blessing the lake, with milk rather than vodka, before they started their run out into the middle of the lake. Along the way they were provided with fruit, nuts and hot drinks and had to jump the cracks in the ice! Click here to read more about this amazing challenge.
Despite Lucy’s broken arm and Liam’s knee injury they completed the race in 2hrs 25mins and 2hrs 46mins respectively.
So far they have raised over £4,000 for ThePromise and if you would like to help increase this amazing total please visit their JustGiving page.
