I'm mildly impressed that the wide fluctuation in temperature doesn't immediately strike them dead.

That's what I was wondering too. I know polar bear plunges can cause heart attacks, and those aren't anywhere nearly as extreme a temperature differential as this insanity.

i have this image of running with one hand over my junk and the other over my mouth or nose or ears... in the snow... in 100 degrees below... and then i think, wait, they start in a 200 degree sauna!?!  I've cooked a tenderloin at that temperature!

I met one of those guys once.

He told me that one of them tripped on the run once, and apparently at that temperature you stick to the ice a-la A Christmas Story. His words about what you do then? "One guy grabs each arm, you ignore the screams, lift, and run."
