Distance to go:
Ben and Tarka will cover 1800 miles starting from Scott's Terra Nova Hut at the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole and back to the coast again. That's equivalent to 69 back-to-back marathons hauling up to 200kg each (the weight of roughly two adult men) of kit and supplies necessary to survive.
Distances here are shown in statute miles.
We’ve had lots of questions since the start of the expedition. Thank you all for your fantastic support!
To keep them all in one place here are answers to some of the most popular topics so far: Frequently Asked Questions
Given the volume we’ve received, and that Ben and Tarka have long and challenging days on the ice, we hope you understand that we won’t be able to respond to each one individually. Ben and Tarka will answer where they can though by dedicating a regular blog (every week or so) to answering a selection. The support team will also answer a selection in between. If you’ve got several questions (for example, as a class) please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you haven’t already please do also visit the Scott Expedition YouTube channel where there are plenty of great videos about the expedition.
Thank you once again for all your support.
Looking forward to the months ahead!
The Scott Expedition Team
