You want to run in Antarctica? This year’s event, with runners from 16 countries, has long been sold out, as are the 2010 and 2011 races. The 200 berths for the 2012 race are filling fast, even with tour packages starting at $5,000, which works out to just under $200 per mile. The cost per minute of running rate is a relatively better deal - last year’s winning time, on a sub-freezing day, was 6 hours 43 minutes. -universal sports
