Ben Saunders & The Scott Expedition 2013

In October, British polar explorer & adventure and long-time Bremont Ambassador Ben Saunders begins an eagerly anticipated challenge of a lifetime.

Ben and his teammate Tarka L’Herpiniere are setting out to honour Scott’s legacy by becoming the first to retrace and complete Scott’s original, perilous Terra Nova expedition.

The Scott Expedition is a 1,800-mile (2,900km), four-month unsupported return journey from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole on foot following Scott’s exact route. Equivalent to 69 back-to-back marathons, the team will face temperatures as low as -50 °C and will haul sledge loads of up to 200kg each.

Ben will be wearing his hardy Bremont Supermarine S500 on the expedition and recently inspired guests at the Bremont Adventurers Club in Mayfair.
