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.
A short film about a week spent training on the Isle of Skye last November with Al and Martin (my teammates in Antarctica later this year), Andy (expedition manager) and Tem (the wonderfully talented filmmaker who’s helping us document everything that’s going into this expedition).
I’ll post a fuller update -and indeed a proper introduction to what we’re up to- in the next few days…
