What shoes to run?
It is better to have different sets of clothes and shoes. Usually in March the ice on lake Baikal is covered with snow and run comfortably in trail sneakers with an average tread. Sometimes the ice is open, of course, you can use the shoes with spikes. Option with overlays for shoes is possible but not very good in practice
Will be food item?
There are three food items in 5,10,15 km. We offer for you: water, warm tea,fruits chocolate and our friendly volunteers
Why do you need sunglasses and sunscreen in the winter?
The sun is so bright in good weather in March on Baikal. It would be better to us the sunglasses.
How to get to the start point?
The most reliable way is the train ride from Irkutsk to Slyudyanka. Get to the station Temnaya Pad then go down the path to Baikal to the village Staraya Angasolka. It takes one hour to go for a walk. Also we can get to Staraya Angasolka a day before the start from Slyudyanka by train “Motanya".
Can I come by car to the start place?
There is no ice crossing official.
Is it dangerous to run on ice?
There is so strong and thick ice in the lake in this season. This ice can support the weight of a multi-ton machine. Before the construction of the Circum-Baikal Railway there was a ferry for a steam locomotive from the west to the east coast of Baikal.
