Welcome Home Reception for the Scott-Amundsen Centenary Race

http://scottamundsenrace.org/ - go to their site and donate to the very worthy Royal British Legion


I went to the welcome home reception for Henry Worsley and his team last Thursday in the Queen's Gallery.

A 900 mile race to the bottom of the world

Henry has been in the Antarctic since November with 5 other expedition members. Henry, Lennie and Lou in the Amundsen Team and Mark, Vic and Kev in the Scott Team. They reached their goal after 920 miles, 10,000 feet of climbing, pulling 140kg sledges and walking over 120 miles of glacier.
The Scott team finally made it to the South Pole 100 years to the day when Scott himself made it there.
