The North Pole is an awe-inspiring terrain of shifting ice and roaming polar bears. To run 42 kilometres in its sub-zero temperatures is a phenomenal achievement, which is why we’re proud to be the title sponsor of the FWD North Pole Marathon. This is no ordinary race, and FWD is no ordinary insurance company.
Known as the ‘World’s Coolest Marathon’®, the FWD North Pole Marathon launched in 2003 and draws runners from across the globe. Since 2017, FWD has sponsored a team of professional and amateur athletes to participate, as part of #FWDTeamAsia.
We give our team a comprehensive health check and insurance, which gives them confidence to focus on testing the limits of their physical and mental endurance and raising money for charities. Since 2017, #FWDTeamAsia has raised over US$65,000 (and counting) for charities empowering people with disabilities and chronic illnesses across Asia.
Every year we look forward to following the stories of our Arctic adventurers as they follow their passions and compete in the northernmost marathon on Earth.
