Prince Harry to join British Team for WWTW South Pole Challenge

26th April 2013 by Multimat

Prince Harry has unveiled that he will join the Walking With The Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge squads in November.

Racing against their American and Commonwealth counterparts, the British contingent - Team  Glenfiddich - were present for Prince Harry’s announcement and were clearly delighted that their Expedition Patron  will be an active participant on their trek to the South Pole this winter.

All three teams have selected Multimat sleep systems; Summit XL original foam base mats, Summit 25/38 self-inflating mats and our highly durable Tent Underlay for the expedition, and their preparatory Icelandic training which took place earlier this year.

The announcement, made at 15:00 BST on Friday 19th April and followed the unveiling of the team members who have been selected to take part in the third major expedition to be organised by the charity.

Alongside teams with physical and mental injuries, Prince Harry will race across the Antarctic plateau in a grueling 335km trek across the coldest, driest and highest desert on the planet.

"Something that draws me back to this charity and these people time and again, and always will, is the toughness of mind and an unquenchable spirit that simply refuses to say ‘I am beaten'." Prince Harry

Prince Harry has been a dedicated supporter of Walking With The Wounded since its inception and has served as Patron for both the North Pole and Everest expeditions in 2011 and 2012 respectively. 

His participation in this landmark Antarctic race will mark his most active support of the charity to date.

We wish Prince Harry and all participants a safe and successful expedition.
