the Journey

  • Distance to go: 0 Mi

    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.

Welcome Home Ben and Tarka!

Ben and Tarka have today arrived back in the UK to a fantastic welcome from friends, familiies and partners Land Rover and Intel at Heathrow Airport.

Here are a couple of pictures as they touched down and a snapshot into a report on their return. More to follow shortly....

In the meantime tune in to ITV Daybreak tomorrow morning at 7.45am GMT to hear more from them about their epic adventure.

Wow, welcome home! Im doing a University project on Scott’s Expedition and my relative William Lashly who accompanied him. This is fantastic to see and compare with their journey. Congratulations!
