Arrowhead 135 Ultramarathon
"The Arrowhead 135 Ultramarathon owes its existence to the perpetual cold that each winter settles over this region of northern Minnesota, which has been tagged the Icebox of the Nation. As a flagship event in the BAD 135 World Series, a new international series of human-powered races that traverse 135 miles in extreme environments, the Arrowhead 135 Ultramarathon has been designated as the cold-weather race, and it is the opposite of the Badwater Ultramarathon, a sister 135-mile race held in Death Valley, Calif., at the height of summer's heat in July."Cycling Ultramarathons in sub-zero temperatures? These people are nuts... and amazing!
