    I'll guess at Resolute Bay, Nunavut, Canada.

    If correct, the landmass is North America.

    The athletic event is the Polar Challenge, a race on skis to the North Magnetic Pole, a distance of around 650km.

    The wording of the question indicates that I'm wrong, but there you have my guess.

    It's a good guess and you're in the ballpark.

    Clue 1: The landmass while part of Nunavut, is not physically attached to the North American continent.

    Clue 2: This man made route facilitates the athletic event.

    It's Labrador City, starting and ending point of the world's toughest snowmobile endurance race called Cain's Quest, which takes place in Labrador.
    The length of the race is 3300 km. It is the longest of its kind. Teams are equipped with satellite tracking units. The route leads through snow, wood and over frozen lakes.

    That's incorrect. Please review my reply to @KevinJS in particular Clue 1. No vehicles are involved.

    Saw some similar tracks on the way to Yellowknife a few years ago, so...

    Igloolik, Baffin Island.

    The Nunavut Quest. Dog Sled Race.

    EDIT: Nope. I can see straight away that's wrong. It doesn't start and finish in the same place.

    It's the world's toughest marathon, Nunavut Midnight Sun Marathon, starting and ending in Arctic Bay, with a length of 84 km. I'm not quite sure about the island: Baffin Island.

    Is it the steam vent field at 'Volcano National Park' Hale Mar, Hawaii?

    AA

    Edit: I'm guessing what looks like ice is silicate or calcium deposits. But maybe it's ice and therefore not Hawaii.

    Is it the 'Geysers' field of the Bolivian Salt Flats and Deserts, Bolivia?
    Your image is similar to one I found in a travel blog. The two people writing for the blog noted the local temperature on the day of their visit was -17°c accounting for some ice deposits.
