Settled in yesterday. Kangerlussuaq is a former US base and was called Blue West Eight. It is utilitarian. Just a few rectangle buildings that house the Inuits and handful of Danes that service the airport which is the only jet runway in Greenland.
We are 120 runners from 25 countries. Good camaraderie.
Last night we had a BBQ of musk Ox and reindeer. Ten early night and slept for 10 hours during which it snowed 5 cm. incredible scenery.
Today we are off by truck to the icecap to recce the route and test our spikes on the ice. Temp is a balmy -4C.
