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.
There and Back (Video)
If you (like us) are suffering from blog withdrawal this morning watch this short video looking back on Ben and Tarka's incredible journey.
There's plenty more to follow in coming weeks so do stay tuned. Ben will be blogging as he and Tarka make their way back to the UK. We're also looking forward to getting a first peek at the footage and more photos from the final days.
Thank you everyone for your incredible messages of support and congratulations, both over the last 48 hours and throughout the expedition as a whole.
Ben and Tarka will be in touch again before too long... Do keep an eye out @scottexpedition and @polarben on Twitter and on the Scott Expedition Facebook page though in the meantime. For more videos the Scott Expedition YouTube Channel is certainly worth a peek.
