Last week Ireland’s Paul Robinson broke the continental mile record for Antarctica, running 4 minutes, 17.9 seconds, as part of the Antarctic Ice Marathon and 100K. The 26-year-old Robinson, who has a best of 3:35.22 for 1500 meters ran across the Union Glacier to record his record breaking time.
“Standing on the start line, you just couldn’t see the finish line. You’re just running into this white abyss and you’ve mountains either side of you. It was surreal, and very hard with words to do it justice as to how isolated you are.”
Next major events for Robinson are the national indoors and European Championships in 2018.
