Dutch skaters find the ice is right at Khuvsgul Lake PDF Print E-mail

KHOVSGOL LAKE, Mongolia, March 22 (Reuters) - Luke Distelhorst 

The quest for high-quality ice took 150 Dutch skaters nearly 7,000 km to the frozen north of Mongolia last weekend for an event which has its roots in a centuries-old race around the Netherlands.It would be hard to find more of a contrast with the quaint villages and towns of northern Europe than Khovsgol Lake, set in one of the world's least densely populated areas and surrounded by 3,000-metre mountains.An amateur offshoot of the historic Elf Steden Tocht or 11-City race in Friesland, northern Netherlands, the 200-km Winter Marathon targets non-professional skaters and has been held annually since 1974.

The increasingly variable freeze cycles back home, however, have forced organisers to look further and further afield for more reliable ice.

"The winters in Holland only allow long-distance skating once every five or six years now," said Daniel Rooijackers, director of Footsteps Asia, one of the organisers of the event.

Although the race has been held in eight countries over the last 30 years or so, the decision to travel across two continents to one of the most remote regions in the world did not come easily.

"When we first approached the Winter Marathon directors about holding the race in Mongolia, the first thing they said was, 'Mongolia!? No, never!'," D. Gantomor, director of Active Adventure Tours said at the end of the race on Sunday.

"But the conditions of the ice in Mongolia and the exotic and cultural atmospheres overwhelmed them."

So last weekend, a hardy bunch of Dutchmen and women, together with a handful of locals, raced for two days around a special 9.1-km track on clear blue ice under equally blue skies in moderate daytime temperatures of minus 10 degrees Celsius.

"Normally the Winter Marathon is 200km in one day," said Wiebe Barkey, vice president of the Winter Marathon Organisation.

"However we were worried about Mongolia's tendency to have high winds which can really tire the skaters out and can make it dangerous, so we did it in two days."
