Grantham Running Club’s Andrew MacAllister joined an international field in the Arctic Circle for this year’s Tromso 10km in Norway.

With no daylight that far north, the race starts in darkness at 3pm on packed ice, running through the Norwegian city’s streets.

With special ice grips on his running shoes and in temperatures of -8, Andrew MacAllister ran an impressive 48min 20sec.

Andrew described the Norwegian city as one of the nicest places on earth.
