How to follow the expedition

It’s getting close now, less than a week to go before I depart the UK. I’m feeling as well prepared both physically and mentally as I’ve ever been for any expedition. Even though this will be a solo expedition I am just the tip of a huge iceberg of support that has helped make this journey a reality. The British Army, Shackleton, Level Peaks, Team Army, SSVC and many more have all played a huge part in getting me this far and now it’s time for me to deliver.

The build up and preparation has been hectic and I’m really looking forward to getting dropped at my start point on the edge of the continent and beginning the journey. As I will be unable to update this website while out on the ice my incredible expedition partners, Shackleton, will be providing full expedition coverage with daily updates, tracking map and many more features at the following site – Spirit of Endurance

Tune in to watch the adventure unfold!
