It is always the battle between the different natural ice rinks who can organise the first marathon on natural ice. This year it was Haaksbergen that won this race by being the first track to offer 3cm of pitch black ice combined with a good weather forecast for the evening. The woman started in the snow but finished under good conditions.
The man started and finished in good conditions and delivered the big crowd a great race. It was Gary Hekman that won the sprint of the leading group!
