Polar virtue

North Pole adventuring without the polar bears

As per the chat on the podcast, here’s a link to the North Pole challenge. You have until the 15th December to sign-up! Which is…tomorrow… :-S It also has a neat graphic where you can track your progress. Love a bit of marketing.

We went with the Norway route: “Set off from Orca Camp on Nordaustlandet, part of the stunning Norwegian Svalbard archipelago – famous for its Polar Bears and an array of Arctic wildlife. We don the snow shoes and head due North for a short, sharp, hop across the frozen ocean.”

This is around 100km, but we didn’t realise that your mileage for the month is already accounted for if you link your Strava account. Otherwise we would have been a bit more ambitious.

We started June with an Ultra Challenge and I only just scraped the 100km, with a cheeky injury. Let’s see if we can double it in December.

I kind of like running. Sometimes. I definitely like gaming!
