In January 2019 in Hatfield Outdoor Activity Centre in Doncaster, UK, Nick Hungerford (34 minutes 48 seconds), Nikki Pope (50 minutes 12 seconds), Sophia Nash (40 minutes 7 seconds), James Allen (49 minutes 32 seconds), Karen Ennis (42 minutes 23 seconds), and Tim Fletcher (29 minutes 59 seconds) all finished their Ice Mile.

Nash’s Ice Mile follows in the wake of her 15 hour 27 minute Outlaw Triathlon in Nottingham, England and 16 hour 29 minute Lakesman Triathlon in Keswick, England. Those two full Ironman Triathlons and her Ice Mile enabled Nash to become an Iron Icewoman, one of only 9 women in history to accomplish this achievement.
