Andrey Chirko

Andrey has run seventy-four marathons in the past twelve years,
   averaging one per month in the last year alone. He is certainly no
   stranger to cold weather running, having participated in marathons
   in Siberia and Antarctica among other frigid locations. However,
   not content with competing in cold weather conditions of down to
   -25C, he has also run races in temperatures scorching upwards to
   +36C. Included among his big city marathons are Moscow, St.
   Petersburg, Istanbul, Athens, London and New York.

   An accomplished writer, Andrey has published thirty-five articles in
   the last two years about marathon running and is also due to
   complete a book on the subject in 2003. According to Andrey, “I
   write primarily to inform Russian people of the joys of marathon
   running and to encourage them to actively engage in running
   activities”. He believes that accounts of his own participation in the
   North Pole Marathon will further this end.

   We welcome Andrey to the North Pole Marathon in the certainty
   that it will be another positive and unique addition to his athletics
