Skate, ski, run and swim, the Iceman race is not for the faint of heart.

It starts with an 8 km ski (2×4 km laps) at the Caledonia Nordic Ski Centre, moves onto running 10 km, then skate 5 km (12 laps), run 5 km and lastly swim 800 m at the Prince George Aquatic Centre. More than 500 people making up 102 teams, along with 51 brave individuals who challenged the race alone, competed in the 28th annual Iceman challenge Sunday, Jan. 25 in Prince George. Men and women braved the water, ice and snow including 42 locals from Vanderhoof. Warm weather did cancel the speed skate portion but all other races went on.

“With cloudy weather and a temperature of +3, I ran in shorts,” Brian Nemethy said, participant from Vanderhoof.

His son Alexander Nemethy 17, came first overall after conquering the race by himself. Alexander’s time was 1Hr 35 min 17 sec.
