SPEAR17 complete their epic 1,100 mile expedition of Antarctica

A team of five Army Reservists have reached the end of their 1,100-mile crossing of Antarctica, after 67 days on ice, making them the first British Army team in history to do so.

A full crossing on the continent on skis, without any assistance from vehicles, or kites, has never been completed by a British team, and it is a feat completed by only three people ever before them.

The crossing is so rarely attempted due to the physical endurance required to withstand pulling all their own food and equipment, extreme temperatures down to -50, high altitudes and crevasse fields.
