BAIKAL
ICE MARATHON Clean Water Preservation Run

Four and Five days packages aimed to reduce jet lag and explore the sites

          

Packages below are designed for those runners who come to Baikal Ice Marathon travelling a long trans-meridian distance, and prefer to get over jet lag adjusting  their body clock well to new time zone of the northern hemisphere ( especially those coming from west) . We noticed that possibility to recover Chrono-biologically after a trans-meridian jet travel provides more opportunities for runners in the BIM to perform well during the run and avoid suffering from piercing Lake Baikal winds. Also, our special offers below enable to explore beautiful winter Irkutsk and Listvyanka on guided tours as well as suggests earlier pre-start registration in very comfortable conditions of the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Irkutsk.
