Pau Capell - Run for the Arctic

Pau Capell's most ambitious project yet - running 250km through the Arctic.

Description

In November of last year, The North Face Athlete Pau Capell took on his most ambitious project yet, running 250km through the Arctic to raise awareness of climate change and the disastrous impact it’s having on our planet.

Facing sub-zero temperatures, fierce winds and snow-covered trails, Pau began his journey in Alta, Norway – way above the Arctic circle – finishing in the small port of Nordkapp. Even in the extreme conditions, the 2019 UTMB winner covered the 250km in a staggering five days.
