The Polar Challenge is a competitive 350 Mile team polar race in the artic to the 1996 location of the magnetic North Pole and beyond. The race takes place in during April and May each year. It takes teams approximately 4 weeks to complete including acclimatization. The training for this challenge has already started and will continue over the next year taking us to Wales, Austria, Canada and then finally the artic. The conditions during the race are said to be one of the harshest environments on the planet with temperatures as low as -50ºC. Each team of three will race on skis, pulling 120lb pulks (sledges) and navigating themselves to 3 manned checkpoints.

In 2008 Stuart Lee Archer, Jamie Wood and Dan Robinson all from the Alnwick area will be taking part in this great challenge as a team. The preparation for this challenge will be as hard as the race its self as each one off us needs to raise £16,000 each to take part, so all your help and sponsorship will be greatly appreciated (please see bar staff for sponsor money box donations). The race is televised by TransWord Sport, Sky Sports and is featured in local and National Newspapers Worldwide.
