Finns run through freezing snow wearing only 'socks' Updated: 2021-02-16 04:34:13 KST

Some people are dealing with the pandemic by throwing themselves out into the freezing cold.
As people in Finland avoid gyms and other indoor sports venues due to the virus, they've found a new way to keep fit running in the snow without training shoes wearing only woolen socks.

"Woolen socks are really warm, they give you a freedom so basically all you need in the winter and you don't need anything special."

This crazy Finnish trend doesn't come from nowhere.
In winter, Finns traditionally have a sauna and then run through snow to jump into an ice-cold lake.
Barefoot running has become popular in the past few years during the warmer months.
