For Mohan Ambaty, completing a half-marathon in Antarctica wasn’t nearly the most difficult part of his trip. The physical challenge for the longtime runner seemed fairly routine compared to the emotional toll of frequent COVID-19 testing, precautionary quarantines and the knowledge that his quest to run a half-marathon on every continent could be deterred at any moment because of uncooperative weather or a positive test result. A few days of seasickness didn’t help, either. But on Jan. 28, Ambaty, 53, completed the Antarctica Half Marathon on King George Island in a time of 2:26:30, finishing second in the men’s event. It was a race like no other, he said, devoid of crowds, water stations and music.Read More

By day Wilson is a police officer in Burlington, but for the past fifteen years he has been an avid runner, starting in his late 20s with the goal of completing a half marathon by the end of that year and never looking back. On Jan. 28, Wilson had a dream come true when he stepped onto the cold, barren ground of King George Island in Antarctica.Read More
