We need to ship a maniac with a shirt to Australia and Antarctica.


We need to get a Maniac to run this next year... Andy? Kinga? Shinsplints? Nick? http://www.marathontour.com/antarctica/


There's one in Sydney.
And I'll be taking it to Perth, Melbourne, and a few others.
Might even get a pic with our Australian Maniac!

:lol: Wow, that looks like a cool race! I'll stick to the Arctic for now, but let's hope someone makes it to the bottom of the world for a quick jaunt.
I noticed the ship (Lyubov Orlova) they use is the same one I'll be on in the Arctic in July.
