Prince
Harry Accepts Antarctica challenge

HRH Prince Harry has announced that he will take part in a race to the
South Pole with a team of wounded British servicemen and women.



 



The challenge includes taking on teams from the United States and the
Commonwealth in the 208-mile (335km) ‘Walking With the Wounded South Pole
Allied Challenge’ in November and December this year.



 



"So, it just remains for me to say to Soldier On Canada, Soldiers
To Summits from the US and Soldier On Australia - welcome to the party," he
said at a press conference in London during which the teams were announced.  He went on to say that "As a member of
the British team, I will have a brew ready for you when you join us at the
Pole."



 



He will be taking part with Team Glenfiddich for the whole race.



 



Trekking for four weeks, the Antarctic expedition racers will drag
sledges - known as pulks - weighing more than 150lb (68kg) and face extreme
temperatures as low as -45C, along with savage 50mph winds.  The team will trek between nine and 13 miles
each day, battle against extreme weather conditions and encounter vast
crevasses, moving ice-shelves, glaciers and snow storms.
