The Cold Half 2015, set for Jan 24th 2015, is open for registration. “Spots are limited this year,” explains race director Doug Woodring, “So please send in your forms as early as possible.”

There are a handful of athletes who wish to replicate the Sub-32 Marathon Club (or Sub-3 Squared Club) achievement of American Fran Crippen and Australian Chris Palfrey. Both Crippen and Palfrey are the only individuals who are known to have completed Sub-3 Squared – the achievement of both running a marathon and swimming a 10 km marathon swim without a wetsuit under 3 hours.

If you have not registered for Standard Chartered Marathon, please let us know immediately. for possibly participating in both events. No one in the world has yet completed this challenge on the same weekend. The Cold Standard is the only event in the world where both events can be completed in the same weekend.”
