Training for the half marathon was just like any other race but preparing to go to a region of the sub arctic, where weather can be unpredictable is something completely different. How to train? 
What to bring? What weather conditions to expect? Here in the south, we had had an unusual fall of balmy weather and no snow, so it was very difficult to imagine cold winds and blowing snow.
It was also very challenging as COVID had put a stop to any travel or live races over the last 20 months. Even up to the last minute of boarding the flights to Winnipeg and then Churchill, there seemed to be a possibility that the race may not happen.
The weather was completely in our favour this year for the half marathon. Not too cold to start and the wind at my back to finish the race.
The distances are a half, full and ultra marathon with a total of 15 participants. It was exciting to meet runners from other cities in Canada and one runner from Italy. As Roberto said, being able to travel and participate in a live race gives one hope of the world returning to normal.
Runners were supportive of each other with high fives and waves as we passed each other on the route. We ran along Hudson Bay, an area that is ripe with history in Canada for shipping and trading. We had our own personal volunteer that drove along as we ran and carried our supplies
and ensured that we were safe. To see the beautiful bay, the treeline, polar bears, ptarmigan, and the ravens is a wonder to behold.
Albert Martens, organized the race, transportation, awards dinner party and the volunteers.  We were treated to music before our race celebration dinner. A blizzard moved in Saturday night, and we hunkered down in the Tundra Inn, sharing stories, and very happy that the blizzard had waited a day and did not occur on race day. We were treated to breakfast supplies that had been brought in at midnight. Churchill once again reaching out to
care for a group of travellers.
Thank you so very much to Albert and Edna Martens for all the hard work and preparation to make this possible.
I thought it was a once in a lifetime journey and race. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat.
Thank you Churchill
