Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit the JustGiving page set up for Fiona Oakes, who attempted the punishing and extreme North Pole Marathon, and WON the women's race, was 3rd overall and set the course record for a woman. Fiona undertook this gruelling challenge to raise funds for The Vegan Society, and for Tower Hill Stables where she cares for more than 400 animals almost single-handedly.

 Read about the North Pole Marathon extreme race event here.

Fiona WON the women’s race at the North Pole Marathon. Fiona was only beaten by 2 men, set the women’s course record, was over an hour ahead of the second place woman – and did this in really challenging conditions of deep snow and temperatures typically below -20 degrees C!
