Moldovan runner braves -60C at Pole of Cold to cover 50 km

A Moldovan athlete proved that extreme cold cannot stop a warm heart as he ran a 50-kilometre marathon through one of the world’s coldest places to raise money for a child with a neurological disorder.

Dmitry Voloshin braved temperatures of less than -60 centigrade  in Russia’s Yakutia and covered the distance in six hours in what he called Unfrozen charity run.

As the race through snow-covered Siberian fields finished, Voloshin confessed that this was a serious test of his stamina.

The Unfrozen run is intended to raise money for a four-year-old Eva Pismenyuk, who has cerebral palsy. Moldovan president Igor Dodon praised the athlete on his Facebook page and said that the charity fund of the first lady will also ‘contribute’ to the treatment.

The marathon was not the first of Voloshin’s extreme adventures.

In April 2018, he took part in the North Pole Marathon and covered the classic distance in five hours and three minutes.
