In October 2017 five British Army women skied coast-to-coast across Antarctica covering a tremendous 1700km using muscle power alone!

They carried their supplies and equipment they needed to survive for up to 600km at a time and utilise only two resupply points on route. During the expedition medical research was conducted into how the female body copes with extreme endurance in polar environments.
