This has not been an easy race for Tiberiu as he has run 563 km for a week across the Arctic shore, in very tough weather conditions. He has trained for the race by sleeping outside in Romania during the winter and he had to be prepared to run in -50°C temperature and very strong winds (200km/h).Moreover, this competition does not consist only in running, as the competitors have to carry sleds with food and sleeping kits. They are allowed to drop them on the way to the finish line.
