Yakutsk completed his epic ice run from Oymyakon, the coldest settlement on the planet.
As the rest of his native Sakha Republic were ringing in the New Year, he began running on the road towards Tomtor minutes after midnight on 1 January, risking encounters with packs of wolves on the way. His route then brought him back to Oymyakon where locals warmly greeted the solo runner who completed his 42.195 kilometres (26 miles, 385 yards) in 5 hours and 8 minutes.
Before he set off, he received support from Chyskhaan - Lord of the Cold, preserver of the frost and ice here in Russia's own kingdom of cold.
