Peninsula runner to race in Antarctica

Bruce Skinner of Port Angeles is taking part in a one-of-a-kind “road” race: in March he and two hundred runners will compete in half-(13.1-mile) or full (26.2-mile) marathons in Antarctica.

Skinner, Executive Director of the Olympic Medical Center Foundation, has been training for the race since Nov. 1. He leaves in early March for the two-week adventure.

Organized by Marathon Tours & Travel, the Antarctica event was first created to enable runners to set and reach the goal of finishing a marathon or half-marathon on all seven continents. The race would be Skinner’s fifth out of seven continents.

Since the races inception, more than $180,000 has been raised for Oceanites, a non-profit scientific organization focused on Antarctica.
